PREFACE. 



The introductions to the documents contained in this book 
were probably the last contribution of Thorold Rogers to 
the cause of research for which he had done so much. On 
hearing that the Society had the Poll-tax rolls of 1380 and 
several subsidy rolls of later date copied out for publication, 
he suggested the addition of the Coroners' Inquests of 
Edward Fs time and some other judicial matter, and offered 
to edit the whole; an offer of course gladly accepted. He 
has analysed the Poll-tax returns and shown the nature and 
extent of the population of the City, small at that time, yet 
much crowded within the old walls. The total number of 
those who were above the age of fifteen only amounted to 
2035. Allowing for the children, and adding about 1500 for 
the members of the University, the total cannot have been 
much more than 5000. He also notes the character of the 
names — the female name is never Mary, perhaps from reve- 
rence. Nor is there more than one Ann, perhaps for the 
same reason. The return of the Hearth Tax in 1665 (the 
year of the Great Plague) shows that, including the Uni- 
versity, there were 5134 hearths, i. e. about 3*6 hearths 
to each house ; and we must conclude that there were about 
one and a-half times as many inhabitants as hearths, i. e. from 
7000 to 75 co - It is now about 50,000, but several large 
suburbs are included. The notices of the subsidies are frag- 
ments illustrating the financial relation of the City to the 
Crown. The Masters and Scholars and privileged persons 
were mostly exempt, or paid in other ways. 

The Coroners' Inquests come from Twyne's vast col-

lections (to which Wood owed more than he seems to 
acknowledge), but the Editor copied several himself from 
John de Osney's Roll in the Bodleian. Of the 29 Inquests 
(one being an abjuration of the realm by a horse-dealer 
before the Coroner), thirteen are murders committed by 
students. The offenders are largely Oxfordshire men, but 
not a few are Irish. The University perhaps had no criminal 
jurisdiction at that time ; and whatever the High Steward 
now has in theory, has in practice expired, and the Vice- 
Chancellor's Court only tries civil cases — small debts and 
(sometimes) torts. Not only were the students armed, but 
it was not always safe to meet a city guild, such as that 
of the tailors, when they were holding their Midsummer 
Revels. The Coroner's office brought in some gain to the 
King in the way of fines and forfeitures. Then come docu- 
ments which illustrate the relations between Town and Gown, 
especially those connected with the great fray on S. Scho- 
lastica's day, 10 Feb., 135I. The result was that the King 
largely extended the privileges of the University, and a 
new series of protests and feuds began. Last of all come 
miscellaneous documents, showing the old boundaries, the 
rental, and the tolls of the City : and details of the expense 
of building the tower of New College and that of Merton 
College. The very detailed index, involving much labour 
and care, is due to Mr. George Parker of the Bodleian. 

It will be seen that we have here a sort of Directory and 
Ratebook and notes from the Tax Collector's books and 
notes of the wages of labour, and some judicial matter ; they 
more or less illustrate the author's great History of Prices — 
a monumental work and indispensable for the history of 
Political Economy. It is to be lamented that Thorold 
Rogers did not live to put the finishing hand to it, but 
substantially the work of his life was done. 

James Edwin Thorold Rogers, son of George Vining 
Rogers, Esq., was born at West Meon in Hampshire, March 
23, 1823. I remember his laying some stress on the pecu-

liarly strong character of the inhabitants of that river valley, 
descendants of the small tribe of Meonwaras in Saxon times, 
and who formed the medieval manor of Mienes mentioned in 
the Dialogus de Scaccario : he thought they had always led 
a somewhat secluded and isolated life. He was educated at 
King's College, London, and then at Magdalen Hall. Oxford, 
where he matriculated 9 March 1843, at the age of 19. He 
took a First Class in Literis Humanioribus in 1846, was 
B.A. the same year, and M,A. in 1849. Afterwards he 
became a member of Worcester College. He was M.P. for 
Southwark 1880-5, and for Bermondsey 1885-6, and prob- 
ably the late hours of the House of Commons told on his 
health. From 1859 to 1890 he was Tooke Professor of 
Political Economy at King's College, London: in 1862 he 
became Professor of the same subject at Oxford, and in 1888 
was again elected to that chair. He took advantage of the 
opportunity to popularise the results of his great book in 
lectures on 'The Economic Interpretation of History'': he 
had already abridged it in his ' Six Centuries of Work and 
Wages,' 1885, and he summed up his conclusions as to 
taxation in an article on ' Finance ' in the new edition of the 
* Encyclopaedia Britannica/ Of his historical works we might 
speak more at length, if this were the place. He died on 
\% October, 1890, in his own home in Oxford.

POLL TAX AND CIVIL POPULATION OF 



OXFORD, 1380-1. 

The following list of contributors to the poll tax of 1380-1 
(4 Ric. II.) has been taken to illustrate the condition and 
indirectly, the population of Oxford. It is an exhaustive 
catalogue of all the persons liable to the tax, that is, all the 
civic residents in the town, for Academics are not charged to 
it, and probably not the matriculated traders, whom the Uni- 
versity could admit and license. The list does not contain any 
trading stationer or bookseller. It seems too that College ser- 
vants living within the walls of the foundation or of the Hall 
are not reckoned. Nor are the monks and friars, a very 
considerable population in Oxford. Nor are known beggars. 
The list is limited to lay persons, being over fifteen years of 
age. The grant may be found with its particulars in Rot. 
Pari. iii. 90. Parliament met on Nov. 5, 1380, at Northampton, 
in the Priory of S. Andrew. 

The grant of this poll tax was said by writers of the time to 
have been a principal stimulant to Tyler's insurrection. I have 
long since pointed out that the causes of that remarkable and 
unexpected uprising were many, and were long in coming to 
maturity. But when people are startled by a sudden and 
formidable fact, they are exceedingly apt to assign it to trivial 
causes. The last cause which they are likely to ascribe it to 
is misgovernment or natural irritation. They are nearly as 
unlikely to assign it to the success of a social propaganda. 
But in our day it is possible to discover the principal agencies 
which were at work. They were mainly two : the dissatis-

faction felt at the attempt to modify by force the rising market 
for labour, and the impulses which the teaching of Wiklif and 
his followers had given to the organisation of the upland folk 
on the lines of social discontent. 

I mention this because, with all the deductions given above, 
I should have expected that the tax-paying inhabitants of 
Oxford would have exceeded the number 2005, which is re- 
corded at the foot of the roll. Some time ago, I reckoned 
that if the tax was limited to persons of 15 years old and 
upwards, an addition of a third more would give the actual 
population. But longer consideration induces me to conclude 
that the fraction is too low, and that as many more would 
be nearer the mark. I am not, and cannot indeed be, dog- 
matic. If the former estimate be taken, the civic population 
was under 3000 ; if the latter, about 4000. It is however by 
no means impossible that the troubles of the year had drawn 
away part of the regular population. We know indeed that 
the insurrection extended over the whole East of England, and 
as Oxford was the home of Wiklif's movement, it is likely to 
have sent its contingent to the outbreak. 

The tax was to yield twelve-pence for every individual in 
the population who was liable to it. But it was to be assessed 
on these conditions — the tax collectors were to levy the amount 
according to the individual's ability, with the limit that no 
person was to be charged for himself and wife more than 20s. 
or less than four-pence. In the Oxford distribution the 
highest assessment is 13s. 4^., and the apportionment is so 
exact that a return is made of ,£100 $s. as the collection 
for the Crown. 

During the time in which the tax was imposed, Wykeham 
was clearing that large space which must have been contained 
in the North-East ward of the town. If Wood's statement is 
accurate, this district had once been a populous part of Oxford, 
and had been severely visited by the plague. It is said to 
have been at the time of Wykeham's purchase a resort of bad 
characters. Until however the clearance was quite effected, 



OF OXFORD, 1380-1.

there was probably some settled population on the site. At 
this time the area which Wykeham enclosed was larger than 
any which had been appropriated within the walls. 

The city was divided into four wards — South-East, South- 
West, North-East, and North-West. The boundaries were no 
doubt the city walls, and the lines of High Street, Queen 
Street, Cornmarket Street, and S. Aldate's. Three town 
parishes existed then which have ceased to be. Two of them, 
S. Edward and South S. Michael, were absorbed into Wolsey's 
College, and the site of S. Mildred's was apparently partitioned 
between Exeter and Lincoln. The wards had each an alder- 
man, two of whom apparently lived in the South- West ward, 
and a mayor, William Dagavill or Dagville, a family which 
long resided in the town. 

The suburbs were S. Thomas, Stockwell Street and Twenty- 
acre, Walton, Dunseye, Osney servants, S. Mary Magdalen, 
S. Giles, Holy Cross, the servants of S. John's Hospital, and 
the monastic servants. Except S. Frideswide's, there was no 
considerable monastery within the walls. All the secular 
Colleges too were within the walls, except Balliol. All the 
Monastic Colleges and Monastic Seminaries but one, Canter- 
bury College, were outside the walls. But the Colleges as yet 
were few. Merton was the only considerable foundation. 
Balliol, Exeter, Oriel, Queen's, had been founded, but were 
poorly endowed. University was as yet unincorporated. 
A new departure was being made with New College, called 
in some of these accounts Winchester College. The Halls 
were numerous. Some are mentioned, but only incident- 
ally, because their servants were taxed. I have noted thirty- 
three. 

Though the Academics are exempt, the Bedels of the 
University are assessed. That of Theology is John Boston, 
that of Civil Law John Dosiare, that of Arts Robert 
Butorwyk. Two sub-bedels are enumerated also — Roger 
Clifton of Theology, and Stephen Hambury of Civil Law. 
The superior bedels are all three married, the sub-bedels appear 



6 POLL TAX AND CIVIL POPULATION 



to be single men. Some persons appear to be without occu- 
pation, either academic or civic, and one is described as 
' quondam stationarius.' It is not however quite clear whether 
these persons lived within or without the city walls, as they 
are not enumerated under any locality, as most of the people 
are. 

A large majority of the persons assessed have surnames. I 
do not pretend to discuss the vexed question, whether these 
names were permanent. Some have only Christian names. 
Some — and this has caused me no little difficulty in drawing 
up the list of callings — appear to be named from their occupa- 
tion only. As I have observed before in examining subsidy 
rolls, the female name is never Mary, probably from reverence. 
Nor have I noticed more than one Ann, perhaps for the same 
reason. But Mary was not unknown, as this was the name of 
Henry the Fourth's first wife; while one of the Mortimers 
was Anne, the wife of the Earl of Cambridge. 

There are 49 tailors reckoned, — this being the commonest 
occupation, — 29 brewers, 24 skinners* and 23 webbs or weavers, 
this being the old name of the calling. There are 18 butchers, 
16 bakers, 16 carpenters, 15 souters (the old name it appears for 
cobblers, though there are 7 who go by the modern name), 13 
fullers, 12 tapsters (all women, this termination always implying 
a female occupation), 12 cordwainers, 11 chandlers, 10 hosti- 
lers, and the same number of slaters. Nine are respectively 
alutarii (I suppose boot-makers) and fishmongers, 8 drapers. 
Seven persons pursue each of the following callings — glovers, 
masons, upholders, and dyers. Six are sheepsters, spicers, 
fishers, fletchers, and goldsmiths. Five are saddlers, lockyers, 
and corsors. Four are tilers, coopers, and ironmongers. 
There are three plying each of the following trades — latoners, 
fourbers, smiths, mercers, sheathers, hucksters, plumbers, 
parchemoners, cursors, and leeches. There are two in each of 
the following — tanners, tawyers, taverners, maltmen, bowyers, 
cutlers, chapmen, spurriers, lotrices (I suppose that there were 
other washerwomen), sutrices, millers, homers and harp-makers.

The following have only one practitioner — dauber, brasier, 
poulter, netmaker, scaler, hosier, vintner, kember, kempster, 
fourner, albitarius, spinner, toner, painter, mattrass-maker, 
harper, apothecary, grinder, textor, barber, capper, sawyer, 
chair-maker, cap-maker, filatrix, sutor, mango equorum, 
garlick-monger, patten-maker, grasier, and vegatarius. Some 
of these traders appear to employ a great many hands, and a 
few apprentices are noted. I have not enumerated the cooks 
and the manciples. 

In order to indicate the distribution of the population, I 
have counted, from the document which follows, the population 
liable to taxation in each of the four wards, and that of the 
several suburbs given. I make the number to be 2035, i.e. 30 
more than are stated to be liable at the foot of the roll. But 
this is no serious difficulty. The assessors had to reckon the 
sum of those who were liable. 

The South-East ward, i.e. the district on the south side of 
High Street, from Carfax to the East gate, contained 344 ; 
the North-East, the most populous, 378 ; the South- West, 
S. Aldate's and S. Ebbe's 348 ; and the North-West 223 : 1293 
in all. Of the suburbs, the most populous is S. Mary Magdalene, 
with 157 ; S. Thomas has 88 ; S. Giles 59 ; and Holy Cross 
15. The district of Stockwell Street and Twenty-acre, i.e. 
what is now Walton Street 24 ; Walton Manor 49 ; and Duns- 
eye 44. Lastly come the monastic servants. Osney has 15, 
the hospital of S. John's 12, while the rest of the non-privileged 
monastic, collegiate and aularian dependents are 259. The 
suburbs then contain 742 taxable persons. 

It is probable that the Colleges, Halls, and monastic institu- 
tions contained at least 1500 inmates. If this be fairly accurate, 
the whole population of Oxford, academic and civic, a little 
more than five centuries ago, was from about 5000 to 5500. 
It will be seen that in some cases the roll gives no rate. It 
is, I presume, defective.

The following is a summary of their proportion of a tenth 
paid by the laity of Oxford in the year 1394-5. The amount 
is given by the several parishes. The tenth was to be paid in 
two moieties. The interest of the document lies in the indirect 
evidence it gives as to the magnitude and comparative wealth 
of the several Oxford parishes. It will be seen that the largest 
contribution is from S. Martin's (Carfax) parish, though the 
area of this parish is small.

The date of the following document, other than that it is 
thought to be of Richard the Second's reign, is not given. 
It appears to be a return from the parish of S. Mary the 
Virgin only, and to contain those names which the sub-col- 
lector declared to have paid a poll-tax of 4d. each person, the 
subsequent distribution of the total liability being a further 
part of the process of assessment and collection. It will be 
observed that the document gives no intimation as to the 
position, occupation, or resources of the persons enumerated. 
The interest of the document is that it shows, that at the time 
of its compilation, that there were 295 lay persons living in the 
parish, who were over fourteen years of age, and were, prima 
facie, liable to the fourpenny tax.

In the following document, which is conjecturally assigned to 
Edward the Third's reign, but in which the same principal 
collectors are named as in the preceding instrument, an account 
is given of all persons above the age of 14 years in the parish 
of S. Peter in the East and Holy Cross (Holywell). It appears 
to me that the document is of the same date, and bears reference 
to the same impost as that which precedes it, and that both 
are of Edward's reign, and of the year 1377.

The following is the list of privileged persons, i.e. such per- 
sons as, residing in Oxford, were licensed by the authorities of 
the University to carry on certain callings, and were protected 
from disturbance in such callings by the authority of the 
University. Most of the ordinary occupations were necessarily 
enrolled in guilds, admission to which was through apprentice- 
ship, and occasionally by journeyman work for a time. But 
from an early time, the University was empowered to license 
certain persons in certain callings, and the matriculated trades- 
man, as he was called, survived up to living memory. 

It will be noticed, that, as in the poll tax of 1380, the 
superior and inferior bedels, though privileged persons, were 
not exempted from taxation as members of the University. 
It would seem therefore that the superior bedels were not, at 
least at this time, graduates. 

Of the booksellers and stationers five are described as 
Dutchmen, two are women, and one appears to be a clerk in 
orders, and a graduate. I presume that such a person, engaged 
in a trade or calling, must have been held to have forfeited his 
academical or clerical privilege of exemption. One is described 
as also bell-ringer to the University. 

There are nine barbers, who are all assessed, with one 
exception, on their goods. It is probable that such college 
servants as were found within the several corporate institutions, 
or within the unincorporated halls were not taxed, and that this 
list is of persons who lived in private houses. The spensers 



54 



TAXATION AND POPULATION 



and manciples, i.e. those persons who were employed to cater 
for the Colleges and Halls were probably, in the same manner, 
exempt 1 if they lived in College or Hall/ so there must have 
been more of such persons than the twelve enumerated in the 
schedule. 

Four servants are said to be liable, who were dependents of 
New College, eight of Magdalene. Three are described as 
being servants of the Prior of S. Frideswide, six as similarly 
connected with Merton, Queen's, Corpus Christi, and Hinksey 
Hall, while the relations of two are not specified. Five are 
All Souls' servants. 

The servants de Roba, fourteen in number,, are, I conclude, 
persons engaged as makers of academical costume. But one 
of these people appears to have been an apothecary, and two 
women are plainly laundresses. 

The most numerous class is that of cooks. They are 34 in 
number, and are attached to divers Colleges and Halls. — 
Queen's, Magdalene, University, Merton, Corpus, Canterbury, 
Lincoln, Bernard, Durham, Exeter, Brasenose, and New 
Colleges are specified. The following Halls are also named, — 
Magdalene, Trinity, Jesus, Greek, Hinksey, Broadgates, White, 
New Inn, Hart, and S. Mary, besides Peckwater Inn, and 
S. Frideswide's. The cooks of the heads of Colleges are also 
occasionally designated. But it will be seen that the cooks 
of Balliol, Oriel, and All Souls are not in the enumeration, nor 
those of the very numerous Halls which were still in existence. 
I conclude therefore, as before, that when this servant resided 
within the College, he was exempt. 

The whole number of privileged persons is 111, and the sum 
paid by them is ,£10 i$s. 3^., or under two shillings a-piece. 
The largest contributions are those of the bedels and under- 
bedels, whose incomes, I believe, were chiefly derived from 
fees.

TAXATION AND POPULATION 



By 14, 15 Henry VIII. cap. 16, Parliament with much 
reluctance, and only after great pressure, in consideration of 
the unsatisfactory relations existing between the King and 
Francis I. of France, granted Henry a yearly subsidy for four 
years. The tax was to be i.y. in the pound for the first two 
years on all lands held by natives, 2s. on those held by aliens, 
6d. in the pound on the personal property of such subjects as 
had over 40.9. in goods and less than £20, and is. on those 
whose property exceeded this sum. In the case of aliens the 
sums were to be is. and 2s. If natives had 40s. in goods and 
received wages of 20s. a year and upwards, they were to pay 
4d., if aliens 8d., who were to pay Sd. if they were not liable 
to the higher taxation, and were not on yearly wages. In the 
third year the payment was limited to landowners of £50 a year 
and upwards, who were to pay is. in the pound, aliens 2s. 
The taxation of personalty in the last two years is to be levied 
on those only who are returned as possessing £ 50, when it is 
to be is. in the pound in the case of subjects, 2s. in that of 
aliens. 

The Act contains the usual exemptions. The Universities 
and Colleges of Oxford and Cambridge are excused, with all 
persons actually engaged in study, the Schools and Colleges 
of Eton and Winchester, and certain monastic establishments. 
The servants of the Colleges, however, are rated in a different 
schedule which will be given hereafter. The assessment, it 
will be seen, is by parishes, not by wards and suburban 
divisions. The Mayor and Aldermen are appointed Commis- 
sioners for carrying out the Act, and are made responsible for 
its punctual payment at the Exchequer. In every parish, 
however, sub-collectors are appointed, generally two, who are 
to receive the payments on behalf of the city authorities. 

The tax then is a graduated property tax, exacted from the 
more wealthy class only in the third and fourth years during 
which the subsidy lasted, and in the first place only demand- 
able from those who had over 40^. in property, and had 20s. 
in yearly wages. Only a small class then of the community

was rendered liable. In practice, as is known to every one 
who has studied these valuations for the sake of taxation, the 
estimate of household goods is always low. Money, household 
furniture and effects, and in the case of agriculturists, corn 
actually reaped and threshed, were liable. Growing crops were 
not, and it is probable that stock-in-trade was similarly 
exempt. Such a stock was not often, we may conclude, very 
large, but a capricious tax of five or ten per cent, on goods 
intended for sale must have seriously affected business. It is 
notable too, that the sums levied are generally round, marks or 
shillings or groats, and contain no fractions. The return 
therefore is of the propertied class in the city, and of their 
personal dependents. The two parishes of S. Edward and 
S. Mildred have disappeared, but that of S. Michael in the 
South remains. It is not easy to determine whether the 
Commissioners carried out precisely the provisions of the Act, 
though they taxed themselves pretty fully for the time. 
Henry's taxes, however, were generally very disappointing, 
and fell far short of those which his predecessors had collected. 
Some of those who have commented on this fact, have inferred 
that the old prosperity was declining, and that England at the 
commencement of the sixteenth century was poorer than it 
had been in the fifteenth. Some have set down the decay of 
the towns, of which many statutes make mention, to the 
superior attractions of country life. I am unable to find 
evidence for either inference, and I conclude that the taxpayer, 
who exhibited the most obstinate reluctance to making parlia- 
mentary grants, evaded the distasteful payment. 

The contributors to the tax of 1524 are 422 in all. The 
largest number is from S. Martin, or Carfax. But the wealthiest 
for its population is S. Ebbe's, the smallest, next S. Aldate's, 
third All Saints, fourth S. Mary Magdalene, and fifth S.Martin. 
The poorest parish is S. Peter-le-Bailey. next to it S. Michael's 
in the North, and next S. Giles'. But out of the eleven contri- 
butors in S. Ebbe's, two are among the largest. One Alderman 
lives in S. Aldate's, a second in S. Ebbe's, a third in S. Mary

TAXATION AND POPULATION 



Magdalene, a fourth with the Mayor in S. Martin's. The 
first three pay £3 6s. the Mayor and the fourth^. One 
person, Richard Hampden, residing in S. Mary Magdalene, is 
designated Esquire. He pays at the higher rate. But in All 
Saints John Seman is assessed at £4 10s. This person 
employs nine servants. In the same parish one Thomas 
Wayte is assessed at £4. The callings of the several contribu- 
tories are rarely noted. 

A few persons are designated as Dutchmen, and pay 
apparently the aliens' tax. Such are George Starck in 
S. Aldate's, and Gerard Smith with his servant Francis 
Cornelis in S. Peter's-in-the-East. I cannot guess to what 
branch of the Teutonic race these people belong. Twelve 
servants of the Abbot of Osney are assessed, generally at 
the lowest rate, in S. Thomas' parish. The use of surnames 
has now become almost universal. A few widows are as- 
sessed. 

The parishes which then lay close to the city wall were of 
course small and cramped. Such were the two S. Michaels, 
and S. Peter-le-Bailey. S. Thomas had become to all appear- 
ance the most populous suburb, S. Mary Magdalene the most 
prosperous. At that time it included much which is now 
contained in Balliol College, up to the southern wall of what I 
is now S. John's, and then Bernard College. Its eastern 
boundary was the King's highway, now the road leading to 
the Museum, and the only regular approach to Oxford from 
the north ; for it appears that a ditch was dug across S. Giles', 
and that it passed a little below S. John's southern wall, and 
running along in an easterly direction was made to join the 
common ditch, between Balliol and Durham or Trinity. 
Beyond this ditch were the fortifications of the North Hundred, 
of which the walk opposite S. John's entrance is a relic. 
S. Giles' then was a poor and insulated district. Holywell 
had a few houses on the north side of the street, and near the 
eastern end, as one can see from Agas's map. Here stood the 
gallows, on which the lords of the manor, the Warden and

Fellows of Merton, had and exercised the right of hanging 
offenders after trial. 

It would seem that the whole assessable property of the 
civil population of Oxford, within the limits designated by the 
Act, was under ,£2000, provided a tax of five per cent, were 
strictly exacted. But by this time a subsidy had become a 
fixed quantity in which the old form of valuation was retained, 
in order to allow the Commissioners to distribute it, but from 
which the Exchequer expected to receive an invariable amount. 
I conclude therefore that the principal value of this schedule 
is the register which it gives of the better-off Oxford citizens 
in 1524.

HEARTH TAX OF 1665. 



The Hearth Tax, an impost borrowed from French finance, 
was introduced after the Restoration, in order to assist in creating 
a revenue for the King. It was a payment of two shillings a 
year payable in equal moities every six months on every fire- 
place in a house. It was repealed at the Revolution. It was 
not imposed on houses below a certain small annual value, 
20s. a year. The date of this document is 1665. 

The returns of the hearth money, or rather of the number of 
houses returned which are prima facie chargeable, (for the 
return was of all tenements and exemptions had to be pleaded,) 
are good evidence as to the population of a town or country 
from which the returns are made, and I have employed them 
for population estimates at the end of the seventeenth century, 
assuming that at this period the average number of inmates 
was four. In 1861, when overcrowding was far more customary 
than it was in early times, perhaps is even now, the average 
was 5-366 to each house. 

The Colleges were rated and their liabilities head the list. 
I suppose that the number of hearths is some evidence as to 
the possible number of occupants, though probably two or 
three persons shared the same sitting-room. There is how- 
ever certainly some mistake in the number returned from 
Magdalene College, for in 1684 this College paid on 76 
chimneys, as will be seen in my notes to the History of Prices, 
vol. vi., p. 669. New College is called Winchester College in 
the return, and the number of chimneys is what the College 
actually paid for, till the new buildings were occupied, when it 
paid for 79. 



HEARTH TAX, 1 665. 



77 



The year 1665 was, as is well known, that of the great 
Plague of London. I have not found in the examination of 
the New College and Magdalene accounts that it excited any 
great alarm at Oxford, but it was very deadly at Winchester, 
and greatly interfered with residence at Cambridge. It would 
be likely however to have had some effect on the migratory 
population of the Colleges and Halls. The number of the 
hearths to which they are declared liable, 1501, does not 
correspond with the numbers set against each College and 
Hall, even if the Magdalene number is raised from 12 to 76. 
When the list is added up it comes to only 1329, even with 
this correction. I conclude therefore that the Colleges and 
Halls returned their liabilities on the number of hearths 
actually in use. In the city 24 houses are exempt on the 
ground that they are not inhabited. 

In two of the Halls, Hart and Edmund, it appears that part 
of the aularian buildings were let off to non-academical tenants, 
one of them in Hart Hall being described as a mercer, the 
other as a gentleman. 

Including the full academical assessment, the number of 
hearths in the city, the suburbs and Binsey being added, is 
5134. The enumeration is given by wards and parishes, three 
wards only being distinguished, and one of the parishes, 
S. Martin, being reckoned in each of the wards. 

It seems to me highly probable that many of the larger 
tenements were lodging-houses for graduates and under- 
graduates. There are 72 houses in the city containing eight 
or more hearths. Thus, one contains twenty, one seventeen, 
five sixteen, one fifteen, one fourteen, five thirteen. Some of 
them may have been inns. 

The Mayor and Aldermen of the city are rated on three 
hearths. These should be of the city buildings, those parts, 
I presume, which still stand on the North side of the courtyard. 
The Town Hall, built by Rowney, probably a descendant of a 
person who is named in the list, is of later date. The city 
holding is in St. Martin's. 



7* 



HEARTH TAX, 1665. 



Seven persons only are described as gentlemen. These 
I conclude were attorneys at law. Three are esquires. There 
is one knight, Sir Sampson White, who probably received that 
distinction at the coronation, in which ceremony, I believe, the 
Mayor of Oxford takes a part of right. Sir Sampson White 
kept a shop in Oxford, for I have often noted purchases made 
from him in the College accounts. 

In full term I should conclude that the city and University 
had about one and-a-half times as many inhabitants as there 
were hearths. It must be remembered that students at the 
University, if they came from any considerable distance did 
not leave Oxford in the short vacations, and if their home was 
very remote, resided even during the long vacation. Three- 
quarters of a century after the date of this document, Adam 
Smith resided during the whole period that his exhibition 
lasted in Oxford. 

The list of householders gives very little information as to 
the callings of those who are assessed to the hearth tax. One 
person is described as a mercer, one as a shoe-maker, and two 
as doctors, though it is not clear that this means medical 
practitioners. The total number of householders, a few being 
joint tenants, is 998, and the number of hearths to the city 
population is 3653, or 3-6573 hearths to a house. In 1690, 
the average number of hearths to a house all over England 
was 1-9432, and the number in Oxford in 1665 is higher than 
that in Middlesex at the later date, where it is 3-2780. I cannot 
account for this remarkable proportion, except by the reason 
mentioned above, that many of the houses were destined for 
academical lodgers. Over all England there were no doubt 
twice as many inhabitants as there were hearths, but I should 
infer that in full term the whole population of Oxford, 
Academic and Civic, in 1665 was from 7000 to 7500.

CALENDAR OF DOCUMENTS. 

The foregoing pages are transcripts in extenso of documents 
relating to Oxford Town or City, and University. The fol- 
lowing are a register of such documents in the Public Record 
Office as bear on the city, and are intended to assist such 
persons as may be desirous of gleaning particulars as to the 
City of Oxford. Of course these Records had only an ephe- 
meral interest, and are only fragments of what, had all been 
preserved, would have been a complete financial history of 
the City as far as its relations to the Crown went, and the 
grants to the Crown by Parliament. The first part is of the 
contributions made by lay persons, or at least from lay fees, 
but contain a number of petitions for exemption addressed to 
the Crown by the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars. These

privileged persons did however in fact make contributions to 
the Exchequer, but were not assessed by the ordinary civic 
authorities. The collection has been made by Miss Walford. 

It is quite certain that Parliaments sat, the proceedings of 
which have perished, not being preserved in the Rolls or in 
the Act of the year. This is made clear by the fact, that 
notices of the payment of tenths, fifteenths, and other parlia- 
mentary grants, are inserted in private accounts, though there 
is no other record of them. If an exhaustive account of taxes 
levied in various towns and counties were made, the charges 
to which the people were put for Parliamentary grants could 
be as exhaustively stated. Perhaps when Parliament merely 
made a grant, but presented no petitions of consequence, and 
later on passed no laws, it was not thought important to pre- 
serve the record. 

The clerical subsidies follow on those from the laity. 
They are preserved it appears from the reigns of Philip and 
Mary only.

JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



THE following inquests and inquisitions are intended to 
serve as an illustration of the judicial procedure in what may 
be called courts of the first instance, at or about six centuries 
ago. Most of the inquests and all the inquisitions are ex- 
tracted from Twyne's Collections, an immense repertory of 
Oxford antiquities, and to all appearance the principal source 
of Anthony Wood's notes. Twync copied from the Records 
in the Tower, and the City Archives. Not a few of the 
documents which he handled in the National Collection have 
perished or become illegible, and many of the documents 
which were, near three centuries ago, in the possession of the 
city, have inevitably disappeared. The inquests from the 
9th to the 17th inclusive were copied by the Editor more 
than twenty years ago from a portion of the coroner's (John 
de Osney's) roll, which is still preserved in the Bodleian 
Library. Another portion of the roll was in the city Archives, 
and was copied by Twyne. It contained the first eight 
inquests. A third portion of the original roll is said to be 
preserved in the Archives of Bridgewater. The process by 
which documents and archives have been lost or scattered, 
is no doubt due to the practice of attorneys, who having been 
allowed to hold a lien over deeds till their accounts are 
settled, have kept them long after their charges have been 
met, and in due course disposed of them to toy-dealers and 
others. The privilege enjoyed by these practitioners is wholly 
superfluous, entirely exceptional, and constantly mischievous, 
and should be abrogated. It has led to the loss of thousands 
of valuable documents. 



146 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



These documents are intended to serve only as an illus- 
tration of the state of Oxford society in early times. It can- 
not be disputed that they present a picture of violence and 
insubordination on the part of the University students at a 
time when Oxford was crowded with them, and they came 
from all parts of Europe. A century after the date of most 
of these documents Alexander V, 1409-1410 (Peter Philargi), 
graduated at Oxford as a Bachelor of Divinity, proceeding to 
his doctorate at Paris, and, being finally elected to the papacy, 
was poisoned by John XXII, his successor, as Gascoigne 
alleges. The same person is the authority for the statement 
that there were 30,000 (triginta millia) students at Oxford 
before the plague, Gascoigne asserting that he counted them 
from the Chancellor's rolls *. The number seems incredible. 
The town had no more than about 4000 inhabitants ; and 
though our forefathers packed themselves together very 
closely, it is not easy to see how the strangers could have 
been housed and fed. Of the twenty-nine inquests (one being 
an abjuration of the realm by a horse stealer before the 
coroner) thirteen are murders committed by students. 

When a dead body was found, it was the duty of the person 
who discovered it to raise a hue and cry, and the neighbours 
were bound to pursue the culprit. The parishioners, as we 
shall see further on, were liable to a fine if they neglected this 
duty by daylight. Information was conveyed to the coroner, 
who forthwith summoned a jury. This jury was generally of 
twenty persons, the persons summoned from the parish in 
which the body was found being put the first, and others from 
three other parishes being summoned also. The jurors de- 
clare the facts on oath, though it appears plain that evidence 
of those who were not on the jury was taken. The finder of 
the body was under some responsibility, for persons pledge 
themselves to produce him or her, in case further proceedings 
are to be taken. The chattels of the offender or offenders, 
and the value of the deodand, are escheats of the Crown, and 

* Loci e libro veritatnm, p. 202. 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



147 



the town bailiffs are made responsible for their value. But 
the University had certain rights of escheat, as had also the 
hospital of S. John, the Prior of S. Frideswide during the 
fair, and the rector of S. Peter's in the East, who was also 
lord of the manor of Holywell, and apparently principal pro- 
prietor in that parish and in Wolvercote. The reversion of 
this benefice and lordship was granted to the Warden and 
Scholars of Mcrton by Henry III in 1266, when the society 
was still settled at Maldon in Surrey. 

We shall see that certain responsibilities were attached to 
the office of the coroner and to the jury, when we deal with 
the inquisition of the justices in eyre. By a very wholesome 
rule, negligence, incapacity, or dishonesty on the part of a 
judge involved personal liabilities, for which, if they were 
proved, the offender was certainly amerced. Hence it was 
important to preserve the record of inquests, at least as long 
as any liability was over the head of this official, or even his 
executors, possibly his heirs. We may be certain then that 
the rolls of the coroners were regularly engrossed. It is plain 
from the Inquisition of the justices in eyre that there was 
more than one coroner. The first seventeen in this collection 
are those of John de Osney. But Thomas Lysewys is asso- 
ciated with Osney in the third, and William de Fencote 
Doghe in the eighth. In 1306 Thomas Lisewys acts as 
coroner, in 1307 John Wyth. In 13 14 Thomas de Grampound 
and Reginald Ive act as coroners, and seem to have been in 
office up to Midsummer 1322, when the latest is found. It 
appears that one of Osney's colleagues was Adam de Spalding 
(P- 174). 

Perhaps the twenty-fifth of the inquests should have been 
put with the inquisitions, for it resembles in character the 
first of these documents. The reason for retaining it in its 
present place, is that, according to Twyne, it comes from 
Grampound's roll. 

The office of the coroner seems to have been derived from 
the principle laid down, we are told, soon after the Norman 

L 2

Conquest, that the locality was prima facie liable for homi- 
cides and deaths by accident or suicide. Of the inquests 
contained in this collection four are returned as accidental, 
one as a suicide. The coroner had to get an appraisement 
of the offender's or suicide's goods, and to register the same. 
He had also other duties, as that of securing treasure trove to 
the Crown, a function revived about a quarter of a century 
since, in reference to some golden ornaments found in one of 
the southern counties, which the Treasury sought to recover 
for the British Museum. It seems too from what follows, 
that the early coroners had not only the power of holding a 
court of enquiry and of committal, but of investigating capital 
charges. Edwardus de Hales in the first of the inquisitions is 
indicted before the coroner, Adam de Spalding, for the murder 
of Fulk Neyrmit. 

The perpetual riot and insubordination of these students, 
scholars, or clerks must have been exceedingly irritating to 
the townspeople, and explain, if they do not excuse, the 
occasions in which the burgesses executed lynch law on the 
gownsmen. It does not seem that at this time the University 
authorities had any criminal jurisdiction over the students, as 
they had after Gascoigne had procured from Henry VI that 
the Chancellor or his deputy should always be ex officio a 
justice of the peace. The plea of clergy, and the subsequent 
handing of the offender over to his ordinary, must have 
suggested that outrages could be committed almost with 
impunity when the offender was a clerk. In the many manor 
accounts which I have read, I have never come across such 
acts of violence as are recorded here, as, for example, the 
faction fight in Grope Lane, the occasion of inquests twenty- 
one and twenty-two. The story of Gilbert de Foxlee and 
the tailors, for so I interpret ' cissores,' when the latter were 
holding their midsummer revels (eighteenth inquest), is an- 
other case. 

The Inquisitions, a few of which are printed at the end of 
the Inquests, are illustrations of the process by which the 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE, 



J 49 



city authorities took cognizance of offences. Enquiries were 
held by the coroner, bailiffs, and constables, assisted by a 
jury, into the culprits who have broken the peace, contrary to 
the statute of Winchester (13 Edw. I), the jury, as usual, 
giving the evidence on oath. From the second of these in- 
quisitions we find that it was the custom to appoint certain 
watchmen at Carfax to sec that persons did not parade the 
streets in arms after night fall. In this case the watch sought 
to conduct the offender to his lodging, and for that purpose 
held him in custody till he was rescued by certain clerks, his 
companions. 

The third inquisition deals with the complaint of one Edith 
de Dcnyses, who alleges that her house was broken into, her 
forcer (chest) broken, and her goods carried off. The jury 
however evidently did not believe Edith's story, and will not 
vouch for her reputation and that of her companions. The 
fourth is a disturbance between some of the Abbot of Osney's 
men and certain clerks, when the former had been drinking. 
The fifth is an enquiry into the assessment of S. Peter's in 
the East and its chapel ries to a wool tax held before the 
abbot of Eynsham and his associates, who assessed the 
tax and sold the proceeds of it. Here it seems that the 
parish had neither lands nor fleeces (the Merton Fellows 
kept no flock at Holywell and its appurtenances), and it 
was not clear that Wolvercot was within the liberties of the 
city. 

In the sixth and seventh Inquisitions certain of the autho- 
rities (in the first case one of the aldermen, the bailiffs, and a 
jury; in the other the mayor, bailiffs, two of the aldermen, 
and a jury) present a variety of offenders, very much as a 
grand jury does in modern times. These are of early years 
in Henry VI's reign. The offenders are generally scholars, 
or college servants, and therefore privileged persons. The 
seventh Inquisition is called a view of frank-pledge. The last 
is again an enquiry into an outrage perpetrated on the 
king's watchmen by certain clerks. One of the watchmen 



150

it seems was killed. The offenders are Oxfordshire and 
Oxford born. A very large number of the earlier culprits 
are Irishmen.

JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



Pleas of the Crown, before the Justices in Eyre, 
Jan. 14, 1285 (Twyne, MS. IV, p. 617 sqq.). 

Tfie following record is a copy of Bryan Twyne's transcript 
from the Public Records, and gives an account of those Pleas 
of the Crown, which came under the cognisance of the five 
Justices in Eyre, who were sent for the purpose of hearing 
such pleas to Oxford in the early part of the year 1285. The 
transcript was well known to Anthony Wood, and is frequently 
referred to in his collections. It is a characteristic illustration 
of the ancient process by which the rights of the Crown were 
enquired into and certified by a body of officials, and certain 
private rights enquired into and recognised. The action of 
the Eyre, long ago superseded, is somewhat similar to that 
which is now exercised by a grand jury. As the document 
is of considerable interest, it may be well to comment on it at 
some length. 

The Justices in Eyre were, it is said, first instituted at the 
Council of Northampton, held on Jan. 26, 11 76 (22 Henry II). 
We are told that they were sent by commission of the Crown, 
every seven years, through the whole country, with general 
instructions, and that the object was the ' ease of the people,' 
who were thus relieved from the necessity of attending the 
King's Bench. It is however quite clear from the document 
which follows, that the institution had for its principal object, 
the determination and registration of certain minor sources of 
the royal revenue, such as the chattels of convicted offenders, 
dcodands, and fines levied on officials and parishes (miseri- 
cordiai) who had failed to satisfy some obvious and recognised 
duty. There arc no less than one hundred and eleven cases 



THE EYRE, 1285. 



brought before the justices, for the twelfth is given twice 
over. 

The justices inspected the Coroners' rolls, in order to see 
whether any rights accrued to the Crown from inquests, 
which had been held and recorded. It appears that the 
Coroners were bound to attend the Eyre, as well as the 
Mayor, bailiffs, and twelve jurors. Beyond what came before 
the justices as official records, it appears that they listened to 
informations as to claims of privilege, trespasses, obstructions, 
and illegal fisheries, and that they took cognisance of wrongs 
done to persons who complained of such injuries, the last case 
recording the remedy accorded for an illegal and excessive 
distress. 

It appears that when murders were committed during the 
day, the parish in which the crime was perpetrated was 
liable to fine, if the inhabitants did not at once raise hue and 
cry, and do their best to capture the offenders, and that they 
were liable to similar penalties if they failed to make an ap- 
pearance in the Coroner's court, even though some of them 
served on the jury. But the rights of the Coroners in the 
manor of Holywell, then part of the rectory of S. Peter's in 
the East, and held by Bogo de Clare, were in dispute, as they 
were centuries afterwards, when the benefice and manor came, 
in reversion after the incumbency of de Clare, into the pos- 
session of Merton College, by a gift made to the College in 
1266, before its settlement in Oxford. It will be seen too 
that liabilities incurred by an official, for negligence or breach 
of duty, were claimable from his heirs or his executors. It is 
possible that the very large rights involved in the parsonage 
of S. Peter's in the East determined the removal of Merton 
College from Maldon to Oxford. 

The forty-first case is one of interest. An officer in the 
King's service (serviens Regis) informs the justices that 
Nicholas de Wantham, the parson of Banbury, has been dis- 
covered to be an associate of Guy and Emeric de Montfort, 
and with Llewellyn of Wales, the King's enemies, and that 



1 84 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



he collected information at Court, and communicated it to 
them by letter. On this he is summoned on three successive 
days, and failing to make his appearance and justify himself 
is outlawed. Evidence is then given that the parsonage of 
Banbury is worth a hundred marks yearly, and orders are 
given to the Bishop of Lincoln to sequestrate the benefice, in 
order that neither the incumbent nor his agent may be able 
to derive any of its profits. 

Three of the Oxford churches are said to be in the King's 
patronage ; that of S. Peter's in the East, with its chapelries 
of Holywell and Wolvercot, that of S. Mary the Virgin, and 
that of S. Bodoc. The first was worth ^40 a year, the second 
30 marks. The first was held by Bogo de Clare, the second 
by Robert de Flecham. The third, which has long disap- 
peared, had been granted by the late King to the Penitential 
Friars, who supply evidence to the fact, by exhibiting the 
King's Charter. 

Divers pourprestures are then presented. This offence 
consists in enclosing or encroaching on a public highway, 
either by land or water, or by obstructing water-courses and 
so doing injury to the vicinage. Such offences are alleged 
against the Preaching Friars, who had constructed a bridge 
on a southern branch of the river ; against the late prior of 
S. Frideswide, who had pulled down some quarnels, i.e. half 
towers, such as one sees at New College, of the city wall ; 
against the Master of S. John's Hospital, for appropriating an 
eyot in the Cherwell, probably that near its confluence with 
the Thames ; against the Warden and Scholars of Merton 
College, for encroaching on the approaches to the Town Wall; 
against the Abbess of Godstow, for appropriating forty acres 
of pasture (no doubt in Walton manor) ; against the Abbot of 
Rewley, for building a chamber over the river, which impeded 
the navigation of the Thames near Hythe Bridge ; and against 
the Preceptor of the Templars' house at Cowley for con- 
structing a weir on the Thames, perhaps at Iffley. Except in 
the case of the Abbot of Rewley and Prior of S. Frideswide, 



THE EYRE, 1285. 



185 



the reputed offenders show grounds for their action. The 
building on the river is ordered to be demolished at the 
Abbot's cost, and the City Wall to be repaired at the Prior's 
cost. 

No less than nine vintners are amerced, for selling wine 
in violation of the assize. The quantity sold is 871 tuns, a 
quantity which seems to give some colour to the statement 
as to the prodigious number of students resident at this time 
in Oxford, for if the dolium is taken to be the tun of wine, as 
it ordinarily is, and probably would be in a legal document, 
these irregular trade transactions are of 219,492 gallons. 

Next the justices deal with those who have broken the 
assize of cloth, i. e. have not supplied it at the legal length, 
breadth, and weight of the piece. The cloth dealers are 
fined, and the jury, for concealing the fact, are to be fined as 
well. At many periods of English legal history, the govern- 
ment or the legislature from early times strove to secure the 
manufacture of English cloth, and to discourage the use of 
foreign products. Part of the process consisted in providing 
against fraudulent weaving and dressing. Ultimately the 
product was generally tested at Blackwell hall, near the old 
Guildhall in London, under the superintendence of the Cloth- 
workers' Company. Provision was taken that a similar test 
was supplied at Norwich, Colchester, Leeds, and other centres 
of the trade. Early regulations about the cloth manufacture 
are to be found plentifully in the Rolls of Parliament. 

The justices next proceed to deal with escheats of the 
Crown. Three of these appear to have been forfeitures of 
Jews, and in two cases the Jews had been hanged. In these 
cases the escheat had become the property of private persons 
by grant of the Crown, but it is noteworthy that the existing 
tenants, as on other occasions, had to exhibit the grant, and 
plead their title. 

The sixty-first case is significant. One Henry of Yarmouth 
had been arrested and lodged in Oxford gaol. He had 
hidden eleven pounds of silver behind the grange of Bogo 



1 86 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



de Clare, the rector of S. Peter's, and lord of the manor of 
Holywell, this Bogo claiming and enjoying, as we shall see, 
very extensive and remarkable rights in the manor. The 
prisoner confessed to the Mayor and Coroner that he had 
hidden the money, the Mayor for the time being being one of 
the vintners who had broken the assize of wine, and sold irre- 
gularly an enormous quantity. Now the criminal had stolen 
the money from the Mayor, who had been instructed by the 
King's butler to pay the sum to a certain merchant, the trans- 
action having been evidently on the King's account. The 
hidden sum might be considered as treasure-trove. But on 
the representation of the butler, the King issues a charter to 
the vintner, to be exhibited to the Justices in Eyre, in which 
the justices are bidden to hold the vintner quit of all liability. 
The charter is issued at Bath, only eleven days before the 
judges opened their commission at Oxford. It seems that the 
vintner ran some risk of losing the money either by the claim 
of the Crown, or of Bogo de Clare, and therefore took steps to 
secure his indemnity. The Mayor and Coroner recovered the 
money from the place where the culprit had buried it. 

The next head is a long list of persons who had used 
unlawful expedients for fishing. The offending means are 
Kiddells and Starkells. The first of these is denounced in 
the Great Charter, and was clearly a kind of faggot*. The 
second term is unknown to me. But in Statute 13 Ric. II, 
cap. 19, certain kinds of illegal fishing-nets under the name of 
Stalkers arc mentioned. Thirty-seven offenders are named, 
and among them the two Abbots and the Preceptor of 
Cowley. They are all to be fined. 

The next is a list of persons who had been indicted but 
had got away. The offences are homicide, robbery, burglary, 
and the clipping of coin. One Godale, a homicide, had chat- 
tels, valued at ten shillings, for which, as usual, the Sheriff is 
to be responsible. But the bailiff of Bogo de Clare had ap- 
propriated these chattels, no doubt pleading the privileges of 

* Sec my History of Prices, vol. i. p. 424. 



THE EYRE, 1285. 



187 



his lord. The clippers are Jews, and an enquiry is to be made 
from the Jews, as to what chattels they possessed. Then 
follows a list of persons, one of whom is the Queen's cook, 
who made default on the first day of the Eyre. The Abbess 
of Godstow is reported as having raised a water-mill on the 
King's domain, in the suburbs. 

The jury next present that the town of Oxford was part of 
the King's ancient demesne, and that it was granted by King 
Henry the Elder (? Henry I) to the Burgesses, on the payment 
of a fee-farm of £63 os. ^d., of which £40 is paid into the 
Exchequer, and £23 os. $d. to the brethren (lepers) of S. 
Bartholomew. The charity was confirmed by Henry III, 
who says that it was made by his progenitors ; £19 i$s. $d. 
to go for the lepers' maintenance, £3 $s. for their clothing. 
The town claims certain privileges and generally the customs 
of London, and among others, namium vetitum, that is a right 
of compensation for the seizure of cattle on the ground of 
trespass or damage. 

Next comes the fair held by the Prior of S. Frideswide, 
for eight days from the feast of S. Frideswide, Oct. 18 inclu- 
sive. The jury say that they do not know by what warrant 
it is held. The Prior appears by his attorney and claims that 
they have held it before the time of legal memory, but put 
forward a charter of King John, in which neither the day on 
which the fair is to be held or its duration are specified. The 
case is to be tried. 

The jury next present the fact, that two bailiffs of Bogo de 
Clare had erected a gallows in the lordship of Holywell 
within the last ten years, and had hanged two criminals, a 
man and a woman thereon, the man it seems for horsesteal- 
ing *, the offence of the woman not being stated. When the 
manor came into the hands of Merton College, the same right 
of executing offenders, probably those who were caught red- 
hand in theft, was claimed and exercised f. Bogo de Clare is

JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



summoned to the court with his bailiffs. He claims that the 
parsons of Holywell had possessed these liberties time out of 
mind, and prays enquiry. A jury is impanelled with certain 
knights elected for this purpose, who allege on oath that the 
liberties claimed have always belonged to the parson. 

The Chancellor of the University now appears and puts in 
a charter of 52 Henry III, containing an inspeximus of an- 
other charter issued twenty years before, and on the following 
day a second charter, to be followed by two more charters of 
the reigning king. Among other details, the first charter 
fixes the rate of interest to be paid to the Jews for loans, viz. 
id. per week per pound sterling, or per cent, per annum. 
The Mayor and Bailiffs of Oxford are to make oath, that 
they will preserve the liberties of the University, and the 
local police of the Assize of Bread and Beer is to be carried 
out by the Burgesses *, notice being given to the Chancellor 
or Proctors the day before, or, on failure of notice, the Assize 
to be void. At this time then the administration of justice, in 
the case of wrongs done by parties, is in the hands of the 
town authorities, viz. the Mayor, the four Aldermen, and 
eight Burgesses. The points in dispute between the Town 
and the University are to be decided in Easter Term at 
Westminster. 

The only other complaint presented during the sitting of 
the Justices at this Session within the walls, is to the effect 
that when Salmon are on sale in Oxford — the Thames was 
then throughout its length a Salmon river — the Mayor, 
Bailiffs, and Burgesses appropriate at their pleasure a quarter 
of each fish. On enquiry the Town officials have nothing 
better to say than that they have always done what is com- 
plained of. The Justices in Eyre thereupon determine that 
such an appropriation is injurious and hurtful to the Univer- 
sity, and that the practice must be altogether abandoned. 

Having dealt with the intramural cases, the Justices pro-

Matthew Paris, under a. d 1203, it is ascribed to King John. 



THE EYRE, 1285. 189 

ceed to the cases which arise in the suburbs, and employ a 
jury from the North Hundred or from the district outside 
the North Gate. Here we have a new set of Coroners. Two 
have died since the last Eyre, but there are four who are still 
in office. It would seem that the Itinerant Justices did not 
change their own place of session, which was probably the 
Castle. 

The first case is one of robbery. Two persons had been 
arrested on suspicion of robbery, and lodged in a gaol at 
Headington, under the custody of the bailiff of Bullingdon, 
in which hundred, by the way, the north suburb of Oxford 
was. Presumably one of the culprits was a clerk, for he is 
rescued from prison by a number of clerks. It seems that 
the bailiff" of Bullingdon permitted the escape of the other. 
But a considerable sum is found on them, which the rescued 
man is said to have taken, and this is in the hands of one 
Hugh de Plessets*, from whom the Sheriff is to recover the 
money. 

Then certain homicides are noticed. In one case the cul- 
prit was brought from Chipping Norton on the charge of 
parricide. When he and those who had him in custody came 
near S. Mary Magdalene Church, he contrived to escape, no 
doubt to the church, acknowledged his offence, and abjured 
the realm. The town of Chipping Norton is to be prosecuted. 
Another offender was on his way to the gallows, when certain 
clerks rescued him, and put him for sanctuary into S. Giles' 
Church. In this case, as before, the names of the clerks are 
not known. In a fourth case a murder is committed, and the 
offender escapes. The person who finds the body makes his 
appearance, and gets hanged by the judges of gaol delivery, 
why, the document does not say. 

In the next case two persons had been lodged in the Castle 
prison, had escaped from the custody of the gaoler, and had 
taken sanctuary in S. Mary Magdalene Church, with the 
usual consequences. The Sheriff who had allowed the escape 

* Hugh de Plessets was lord of the manor of Headington.

JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



had died before any judgment had been given as to his neg- 
ligence. The question, it appears, was referred to the King's 
Council in Parliament, which decided that action should be 
taken against the deceased Sheriff's executors. The Rolls of 
Parliament between 6 Edward I and 1 8 Edward I are lost, or 
perhaps one would find some trace of the reference. There 
are six other homicides and robberies, and another rescue of 
a criminal from the gallows by clerks, one of which clerks, 
known by name, absconds. In one case, a former Vicar of 
S. Giles appropriated the lay chattels of a clerk, who was 
convicted and handed over to his bishop. For this he is to 
be fined and made to restore the chattels. A murder by a 
Jew follows, the offender being captured, and first sent to gaol 
to Ledes Castle in Kent, and then a remand to Oxford prison. 
We shall soon see more of him. Three escheats of plots in 
the suburbs are recorded, and divers pourprestures, one being 
the obstruction of a water-course, another the building of a 
cook-shop on the King's highway, near the graveyard of 
S. Mary Magdalene. In three cases of trespass, if no injury 
is done to the public, the trespass is condoned, on the pay- 
ment of a regular rent to the Crown. This license is techni- 
cally called arrentatio, and occurs frequently in the record. 

One Henry, son of Milo, takes money from jurors, for 
giving them notice of their assize and (apparently) their 
liability to serve. He is to be fined. 

Under the head of 1 subtractions,' i. e. neglect to perform 
services due to a superior lord, and pay rents, the Chancellor 
of the University is summoned for a house in Horsemanger 
Street, i.e. the north side of Broad Street. The Chancellor, 
Mr. William Pickerel, appears with the Proctors, and alleges 
as the Jury also testify, that the University is seised of the 
house and rents. The right is to be tried. A tenement also 
which belonged to one John dc Oo, and was now in the occu- 
pation of the Master and Scholars of Balliol, used to pay the 
Crown is. \ \d. yearly. The Master, however, has not paid, 
and the court orders that he pay and be fined. The hundred,

by which it seems the North Hundred is meant, is returned 
as worth annually to the King ^30, £\o of which has been 
granted to the family of Bysot or Bissot. The importance 
of the district comprised under this name, consisted in the 
fact that the north approach was the most vulnerable part of 
medieval Oxford. 

The ninety-seventh case is an appeal of blood, viz. the mur- 
der of one William de Prene by Isaac de Pulet or Polet, a 
Jew. The murder was committed on April 22, 1284. The 
plaint further alleges that Rebecca, the wife of Isaac, was an 
accomplice. The appellants are the brother, John, and the 
father, Simon, of the murdered man. By this time, however, 
one of the Justices in Eyre, Pychford, had left the court, and 
the Jew is sent to prison till Feb. 18. But by this time Roger 
Loveday was the only Justice left, and the criminal is re- 
mitted to prison till further steps can be taken in the matter. 
From these dates it is clear that the Eyre occupied more than 
a month in sitting. 

By the ninety-ninth entry, it appears that one Bekkel, an 
approver, or as we should now say, a King's evidence, charged 
an accomplice Barton, a clerk, with robbery, and was yet 
hanged, I presume for some other crime. The clerk was put 
on his trial before the justices of gaol delivery, was convicted 
and also hanged, I presume because a former conviction, in 
which he had claimed his clergy, had been proved against him. 
His chattels, 1035., had been received by the late Chancellor 
of the University, Mr. Roger de Rowell. It would seem, 
therefore, that under certain circumstances the University re- 
ceived the forfeiture of a felon's chattels. The next two items 
are of indicted criminals who have fled from justice, and of a 
man who was charged with stealing corn, and with other thefts, 
but was tried and acquitted. The list ends for the present 
with the names of the Coroners, Mayor, who is on the Jury, 
and the principal bailiffs, who are also on it. Then follow the 
names of eight Jurors and four ' Electors.' These appear to 
be supplementary jurors, or possibly persons who selected 



192 



JUDICIAL PROCEDURE. 



other jurors for special cases. Similarly there are one official 
of the North Gate and twelve jurymen. 

The rest of the cases are civil suits, or pleas which arise 
from civil suits. Two of them are cases in which the prose- 
cutor of a civil suit, who was bound over, himself and two 
sureties, to prosecute, abandoned proceedings. For this a fine 
was inflicted on all three. 

In the first case it appears that a man had married a widow 
and claims a messuage with its appurtenances in the suburbs, 
in right of his wife, from a person who he says had disseised 
unlawfully the mother of the wife. The defendant replies 
that she conveyed it while she was a widow, and that the 
woman had acknowledged the defendant's title. The plaintiffs 
reply that the conveyance was made while the woman was 
in prison and under duress. This is flatly denied by the 
defendant. The Court decides against the plaintiff and his 
wife. The defendant holds the property, and the plaintiffs 
are fined. 

The next is another civil suit. The case turns upon the 
question as to whether a conveyance was made by a young 
woman at an age at which she could make a valid convey- 
ance. It was asserted by the defendants that she was of full 
age, according to the use and custom of Oxford, viz. fifteen 
years old. The Jury affirm the facts as the defendants state 
them. The plaintiff is nonsuited, and rendered liable to a 
fine, but the Justices remit the liability. 

Next follows the recognition of a debt of twelve marks, 
which the debtor stipulates that he will pay at next Michael- 
mas day. Three sureties come forward and acknowledge 
that if the principal makes default, they will become ' prin- 
cipal debtors,' and that the Sheriff is entitled to issue a fieri 
facias on their land and chattels. This is I think a trade 
loan, like the Statute Merchant security of the coming 
Parliament. Then comes an acknowledgment of half a mark 
for a license of concord about a plea of land, i. e. for levying 
a fine. 



THE EYRE, 1285. 



193 



In another action it appears that Mr. Peter de Abyndon * 
(the first Warden of Merton College) had made a grant to a 
person who by this grant had unjustly disseised the lawful 
owner. The defendant comes into court, and cannot deny 
that it was a disseisin. The plaintiff recovers and the de- 
fendant is to be fined. He had, I presume, his remedy of 
Warranty against the Warden. 

The last case is one of illegal and excessive distress, accom- 
panied by an assault on the wife of the Plaintiff. Walter 
Feteplace, a member of a family which was of great import- 
ance and position in medieval Oxford, had let a house to 
one Richard of Canterbury and Amice his wife, at a rental 
of nine marks a year (£6). It seems from the details that 
the tenant was a Vintner. The plaint is that Feteplace en- 
tered the house, assaulted the woman, beat her and ill-used 
her, and carried off goods and chattels to the value of fifty- 
five marks. They give particulars of their loss ; — wine worth 
£16 12s. , and wine vinegar (as I read the text) up to 53s. 4d.\ 
hay worth £y 6s. 8d. ; wood worth iocs*. ; an iron-bound 
barrel worth 6s. ; a felted cloth ; a coverlet ; and other goods 
and utensils worth £4 13s. 4d.f They allege, therefore, that 
they are damnified to the extent of a hundred marks, and 
make suit. 

The defendant alleges that the plaintiffs held the house of 
him at nine marks a year, that they were in arrear with their 
rent a full year, that they had, in order to avoid distraint, re- 
moved their goods and chattels from the house, and that when 
he heard what they were doing he came to the house, and levied 
a distress upon them to the extent of a single tun of wine for 
arrears, that he did nothing further in the way of insult or 
injury, and he puts himself on his country. 

The Jury ' elected by the consent of the parties ' declare on 
oath, that the rent of the house was as alleged, nine marks, 
that the plaintiffs were in arrear, and that the defendant came

to the house, on the day and year aforesaid (which are not 
given) and claimed his full rent, under threat of ejecting them 
and their goods and chattels at once. And as the plaintiff 
did not at once pay, the defendant took the wife and her boys 
by the shoulders and turned them out, that he beat the 
woman and ill-used her, and carried off goods to the value 
of £\o. When they were asked about the debt of nine 
marks, they said that they were only three marks in arrear. 
The Court therefore decided that the plaintiffs should re- 
cover the ;£io, and fixed the damages to be paid them at £10 
more.

71. Cancellarius Vniversitatis Oxon profert chartam Domini 
Henrici Regis patris Domini Regis nunc, in haec verba. 

Henricus dei gratia Rex Anglise Dominus Hiberniae et 
Dux Aquitaniae, omnibus Balliuis et fidelibus suis ad quos 
praesentes literae peruenerint salutem. Inspeximus literas 
patentes dudum confectas apud Wodestoke in praesentia pro- 
curatorum scholarium Vniuersitatis Oxoniae et Burgensium 
eiusdem villae super quibusdam libertatibus praefatis scholaribus 
concessis in haec verba. Anno regni Regis Henrici filij Regis 
Johannis 32 0 . 29 0 die Maij praesentibus apud Wodestoke tarn 
procuratoribus scholarium Vniuersitatis, quam Burgensibus 
Oxoniae, idem Dominus Rex concessit eisdem scholaribus 
libertates subscriptas : — videlicet, quod si inferatur iniuria 
praedictis scholaribus fiat inde Inquisitio tarn per villatas 
vicinas quam per Burgenses praedictos : et, quod si ipsi 
Burgensis interficiant aliquem de scholaribus Oxon, vel in 
aliquem ipsorum insultum faciant, vel alicui ipsorum grauem 
iniuriam inferent, communitas eiusdem villae per se puniatur 
et amercietur et Balliui per se et non cum communitate eadem 
punientur et amercientur, si negligentes fuerint, vel dolum 
fecerint in exequendo offrcium contra illos qui huiusmodi 
iniurias praedictis scholaribus inferunt. Et quod Judaei 
Oxoniae non recipiant a praedictis scholaribus pro libra in 
septimana nisi duos denarios, et similiter fiat in minori summa 
secundum suam quantitatem, alioqui praedicti Judaei puniantur 
secundum constitutionem regni. Et quod quotiescunque et 
quandocunque Maior et Balliui Oxon sacramentum suae fide- 
litatis praestabunt in loco suo communi, communitas eiusdem 
villae denuntiet Cancellario, ut per se vel per aliquas personas 
electas praestationi iuramenti praedicti si voluerint, intersint ; 
quod quidem iuramentum tale erit quoad scholares praedictos, 
videlicet, quod ipsi Maior et Balliui conseruabunt libertates et 



THE EYRE, 1 285. 



consuetudines Vniuersitatis praedictae, alioquin, non valeat 
iuramentum ipsorum, sed iterum praestetur secundum formam 
praescriptam. Si vero Cancellarius nec per se, nec per pro- 
curatorem interesse voluerit, ad iuramentum nihilominus pro- 
cedatur. Et quod duo Aldermanni sint electi et deputati de 
illis qui pro tempore fecerint, secundum quod ordinati erant a 
Domino Willelmo de Eboraco ad exhibendum iustitiam cum 
Praepositi abfuerint, sub eadem poena qua praepositi tenentur, 
si negligentes vel malitiosi inueniantur. Et quod quilibet 
Burgensis Oxoniae pro familia sua respondeat ; ita quod, 
si aliquis de familia sua mortem vel grauem iniuriam 
vel alicui clerico vel suis inferat, malefactorem exhibeat 
idem Burgensis, ut fiat de eo iustitia, alioqui infligatur 
poena secundum consuetudinem regni. Et quod quoties- 
cunque debeat fieri temptatio panis et ceruisiae ab eisdem 
Burgensibus, praecedenti die denuntietur Cancellario et pro- 
curatoribus Vniuersitatis praedictae, ut per se vel per aliquos 
ad hoc deputatos per ipsos si voluerint intersint temptationi 
praedictae, alioqui non valeat temptatio. Si vero dicti Cancel- 
larius et procuratores Vniuersitatis praedictae per se vel per 
suos interesse noluerint, ad praedictam temptationem nihilo- 
minus procedatur. In quorum omnium testimonium Dominus 
Radulphus filius Nicholai senescallus Domini Regis ad prae- 
ceptum eiusdem Regis, huic scripto sigillum suum apposuit ; 
eodem Domino Rege per literas mandante Vicecomiti Maiori 
et Balliuis Oxon, ut praedictas libertates inuiolabiliter obser- 
uent et faciant obseruari ; quas etiam Dominus Rex fecit 
irrotulari anno regni 33. Nos autem praedictam concessionem 
praedictis scholaribus super praefatis libertatibus de praecepto 
nostro factam ut praedictum est, ratam habentes et gratam ; 
earn praesentibus literis nostris patentibus scholaribus ante- 
dictis concedimus et sigilli nostri munimine roboramus. Teste 
meipso apud Wodestoke i]° die Junij anno regni nostri 
52 0 . (1268.) 

72. Item secundo die, Cancellarius et scholares Vniuersitatis 
proferunt aliam chartam sub nomine ipsius Henrici Regis in 
haec verba. 

Henricus dei gratia Rex Angliae et Dominus Hyberniae 
Dux Normanniae [et] Aquitaniae et Comes Andegavensis,

rant diligenter ne quis suspectus hospitetur in parochia, et si 
aliquis receptauerit aliquem per tres noctes in domo sua, re- 
spondeat pro eo. Nullus etiam Regratarius emat victualia in 
villa Oxoniae vel extra versus villam venientia, nec aliquis 
emat nec iterum vendat ante horam nonam, et si fecerit, 
amercietur, et rem emptam amittat. Si laicus inferat clerico 
grauem vel enormem laesionem, statim capiatur ; et, si magna 
sit laesio, incarceretur in castro Oxoniae, et ibi detineatur quo- 
usque clerico satisfaciat, et hoc arbitrio Cancellarij et Vniuer- 
sitatis Oxoniae si clericus proteruus fuerit ; si minor vel leuis 
sit iniuria, incarceretur in villa. Si clericus inferat grauem et 
enormem laesionem laico, incarceretur in praedicto castro, quo- 
usque Cancellarius praedictae Vniuersitatis, ipsum postulauerit : 
si minor, vel leuis sit iniuria, incarceretur in carcere villae quo- 
vsque liberetur per Cancellarium. Pistores et Braciatores 
Oxoniae, in primo transgressu suo, non puniantur, sed in 
secundo amittant panem, et in 3 0 transgressu habeant iudicium 
dc pilloria. Quilibet pistor habeat sigillum suum et signet 
pancm suum per quod possit cognosci cuius panis sit. Quicun- 
que de villa Oxoniae brasiaverit ad vendendum, exponat 
signum suum, alioquin amittat ceruisiam. Vina Oxon ven- 
dantur indiffcrenter tarn clericis quam laicis, ex quo in- 
brechiata fuerint. Temptatio panis fiat bis in anno, videlicet in

statim redderet, alioqui, ipse praedictos Ricardum et Amiciam 
cum omnibus Bonis et Catallis in eadem Domo existentibus

ipsius Aliciae, qui illam ei dimisit, cui ipsa in vita contradicere 
non potuit &c. et Walterus venit, et defendit ius suum inde &c. 
et dicit quod praedicta Alicia nihil iuris clamare potest in prae- 
dicto tenemento de dono praedicti Waited le Goldsmyth, eo

in eodem nisi ratione praedicti Willelmi cuius ius praedictum 
tenementum fuit, et de hoc ponit se super patriam et Alicia 
similiter, ideo fiat inde Jurata. 

Jurati de consensu partium electi dicunt super sacramentum 
suum quod praedictum tenementum fuit ius et perquisitum 
praedicti Willelmi quondam primi viri sui absque hoc quod 
predicta Alicia coniunctim cum eo inde feoffata fuisset ; et 
ideo consideratum est quod praedictus Walterus inde sine die

tenemento, eo quod idem Alanus intrauit in eodem per reddi- 
tioncm praedicti Roberti et non per disseisinam, et de hoc 
ponit se super patriam et Radulphus similiter, ideo fiat inde

pertinentiis in Oxonia per totam vitam ipsius Elyae, reddendo 
inde secundum taxationem Villx Oxonia, ac idem Radulphus 
esset inde in seisina per vnum mensem per conuentionem 
praedictam, quousque praedictus Elyas ipsum inde eiecit, et 
praedictam conuentionem faccre contradicit, vnde dicit quod 
deterioratus est, et damnum habet ad valentiam x 11 et inde 
producit sectam. Et Elyas venit, et bene cognoscit praedic- 
tam conuentionem, et concedit quod praedictus Radulphus 
habcat praedictam domum tota vita ipsius Magistri Elyx 
reddendo inde per annum secundum taxationem Villae Oxoniae. 
Et super hoc venit quidam Phillippus nlius et haeres cuiusdam 
Oliucri cuius ius praedicta domus fuit, et dicit, quod praedictus 
Olivcrus pater suus obiit seisitus de praedicto messuagio in 
Dominico suo ut de feodo ; post cuius mortem ipse intrauit in 
praedicto messuagio, ut in ius et haereditatem suam et semper 
hucusque remansit ipse in seisina et adhuc est, et petit quod 
nulla conucntio fiat inter praedictum Elyam et Magistrum 
Radulphum ad exhaercdationcm ipsius Philippi &c.

Et prsedictus Magister Radulphus dicit quod praefatus 
Elyas le Coilter, die quo dimisit ei praedictum messuagium, 
fuit ipse in seisina de praedicto messuagio, ut de libero tene- 
mento,quod petit ut inquiratur per patriam. Et Jurati dicunt 
super sacramentum suum quod praedictus Oliuerus pater prae- 
dicti Philippi obijt seisitus de praedicto messuagio, et dicunt, 
quod in vltima voluntate sua legauit ipse praedictum messua- 
gium cuidam Margeriae uxori praedicti Elyae tenendum ad 
totam vitam ipsius Margeriae ; et dicunt, quod postquam idem 
Elyas et Margeria fuerunt in seisina de praedicto messuagio 
per legatum praedictum, fecit praedictus Elyas praedictam 
Conuentionem cum praedicto Magistro Radulpho de praedicto 
messuagio ; et ideo consideratum est, quod praedictus Elyas 
teneat praedicto Radulpho conuentionem sicut praedictum 
est, et praeceptum est Vicecomiti, quod habere faciat praedicto 
Radulpho seisinam suam.

habent ingressum nisi per Robertum de Flecham personam 
Ecclesiae S. Mariae Oxoniae, cui Petrus de KyUn illam dimisit, 
qui inde iniuste et sine iudicio disseisiuit praefatum Johannem 
postquam &c. et Ricardus et Maria veniunt et vocant inde ad 
warantiam Robertum Flecham qui venit per summonitionem et 
ei warrantauit et reddidit praedicto Johanni praedictam Shopam; 
et ideo consideratum est quod praedictus Johannes recuperet 
seisinam versus praedictum Ricardum et Mariam, et Ricardus 
et Maria habeant de terra praedicti Roberti ad valenciam, et 
Robertus in misericordia. 

125. Magister Ranulfus le Taillour de Oxonia summonitus

sus Walterum de Witteney et Johannem Attemontes 3 aG1 par- 
tem vnius messuagij cum pertinentijs in Oxonia ut dotem &c. 
Et Walterus et Johannes veniunt et dicunt quod praedicta 
Alicia post mortem praedicti Willelmi quondam viri sui tenuit 
praedictum messuagium nomine franci banci sui et inde fuit in 
seisina per 40 dies et amplius ; et dicunt, quod consuetudo 
Villae Oxoniae talis est, quod quando aliqua mulier post mor- 
tem viri sui tenuerit se in aliquo tenemento nomine franci 
banci per 40 dies vel amplius, et postea se nupserit alicui, quod 
ipsa semper postea excluditur ab actione pro dote sua petenda 
de praedicto tenemento. Et dicunt quod quia praedicta Alicia 
tenuit praedictum messuagium nomine franci banci sicut prae- 
dictum est, excluditur ipsa ab actione sua ad dotem petendam 
de tenemento praedicto, et petunt iudicium : Et Alicia dicit, 
quod ipsa nunquam aliquid habuit in praedicto messuagio 
nomine franci banci nisi nomine nutriturae cuiusdam Roberti 
fllij et haeredis praedicti Willelmi quondam viri sui, et quod ita 
sit ponit se super patriam, et Johannes et Walterus similiter, 
ideo flat inde Jurata : et Symon Balle et Johannes de Hast- 
inges rectati non venerunt, ideo in misericordia. Jurati dicunt 
super sacramentum suum quod consuetudo Villae talis est, 
quod quando aliqua mulier tenuerit se in aliquo tenemento 
quod fuit viri sui per 40 dies, nomine franci banci sui, et 
postea virum ceperit, quod non debet aliquo modo de eodem 
tenemento dotem habere ; et dicunt quod praedicta Alicia 
tenuit se in praedicto tenemento post mortem viri sui per 40 
dies clamando in eodem francum bancum suum ; et ideo con- 
sidcratum est quod praedicti Walterus et Johannes inde sine

de praedicto messuagio ut de feodo, ita quod ipsam inde 
dotare potuit, et quod ita sit, ponunt se super patriam et

post lapsum praedictorum 6 annorum, idem Robertus tene- 
mentum illud reddidit praedicto Alano ut ius suum, et idem 
Al-anus illud postea vendidit praedictis Johanni et Aliciae ; et 
quia conuictum est per Juratam istam quod praedictus Rober- 
tus quondam vir ipsius Aliciae fuit in seysina de praedicto 
tenemento ut de feodo die quo ipsam desponsauerat, considera-

sion of Enquiry appears to be addressed to some officer of 
the Crown, and to the town authorities, viz. the Mayor, the 
Mayor of the preceding year, and another justice of the peace, 
with a view especially of enquiring and reporting on the mis- 
deeds of a clerk, one John Wynter. The authorities make 
their return about this person, but they also give a long list 
of thieves and receivers of stolen goods in the City, and par- 
ticularly of one Morris Macadam and his associates in crime. 
The returns also give an account of a gang of housebreakers 
and thieves from Ireland, who infested the town, and were 
harboured by well-known receivers. A second inquisition 
held the same day before a different jury, deals with the 
offences of another clerk, and with the dishonesty of certain 
tanners at Oxford and Abingdon, who sell leather which is 
insufficiently prepared. The sale of leather by the foot (I 
presume the square foot) has not come under my notice else- 
where. The reference to a statute seems to be that prayed 
for 18 Ric. II. Rot. Pari. III. 331. a. The average price of 
a tanned back at this date is about 3s. The juries it will be 
observed are twelve in each inquisition.

THE FRAY ON S. SCHOLASTICA'S DAY 
(Feb. 10), 1354. 



The story of the Fray on S. Scholastica's Day (Feb. 10), 
1354, is told in Wood's Annals of Oxford, Vol. I. p. 455. 
There had been, it seems, a growing feeling of dissatisfaction 
among the townspeople at the privileges of the University, 
and of ill-will towards the Scholars. It is, I think, not un- 
likely that the natural jealousy of the two Corporations, or 
perhaps, to be more accurate, of the two chartered institutions, 
was made keener on the part of the City by the violence and 
insubordination of the students, whose numbers, if we can 
trust Gascoigne, had been greatly reduced in consequence of 
the plague, which had been particularly deadly in Oxford, 
five years before. The quarrel began at a tavern, kept by 
John de Bereford, who is referred to with others in the docu- 
ments which follow. Bereford, if Wood is to be relied on, 
and he probably got all his information from Twyne, subse- 
quently became Mayor of the Town. Swyndlestock's Inn or 
Hostel had once belonged to a Jew of that name, and after- 
wards came to the City. It was subsequently known as the 
Mermaid Tavern, and was, according to Wood, at the North- 
East corner of Carfax. 

It appears that the attack on the Scholars was organised 
by John de Bereford, Richard Forester, and Robert Lardiner, 
who not only got together an armed mob in the Town itself, 
but incited a number of country folk to join them. These 
upland people forced the west gate, and displaying a black 
flag, took an active part in the outrages, which lasted it seems 
for three or four days. Wood gives the names of some among 
the murdered students, and it is noteworthy that a large pro- 



%\6

portion of these victims were Irishmen. The King was at 
Woodstock, and was soon informed of what had happened. 
The Bishop of Lincoln, John Gynewell or Gindwell (June 2, 
1347 — Aug. 5, 1362) at once excommunicated the aggressors, 
and put the Town under an interdict. The documents which 
follow illustrate the course of procedure taken by the eccle- 
siastical and civil authorities. So serious was the alarm, that 
the University was dispersed, and was recalled with difficulty. 

The Town charters were surrendered, as were also those of 
the University. Those of the former were in time restored, 
but the privileges of the burgesses were greatly curtailed, 
being transferred in many particulars to the University. 
From this award, dates the control of the market by the 
University, a most important concession at those times. It 
is evident that in Twyne's day there was a controversy as to 
the date at which the Town's charter was restored, and I have 
thought it expedient to print Twyne's note, along with the 
documents. The agreement between the University and 
Town is given in Norman French, and is substantially the 
same as the Bishop's award. 

As might be expected in the case of Corporations, the 
liabilities and the penalties which the burgesses incurred, and 
certain other memories of the ' great conflict,' remained till 
or near living memory. The numerous oaths of a Master 
of Arts, up to the end of the first quarter in the present cen- 
tury, included two, that the inceptor would not lecture at 
Stamford or elsewhere, and that he would disclaim Henry 
Simeon. My late friend, Bp. Jacobson, told me that these 
were expedients adopted when the University had dispersed, 
and some of its members were reluctant to return, and he 
added that when King's College, London, was established, 
certain members of Oxford University, who had been invited 
to take part in the instruction given at that Institution, de- 
clined the offer reluctantly, on the ground that the acceptance 
of such offices would be at variance with the oaths which 
they had taken at their inception. 



THE FRAY ON S. SCHOLASTIC A" S DAY. 247 



The payment of the forty silver pennies lasted to about the 
date at which the Master's oaths were revised. The late Dr. 
Macbride told me that a considerable Oxford citizen, one of 
the partners in the Old Bank, had declared that if he were 
elected Mayor, he could not acquiesce in the ceremony. He 
was elected Mayor, and kept his word. The University sued 
J, him, and recovered a hundred marks from him, which it gave 
to the Radcliffe Infirmary, where it is or was duly registered 
on the table of benefactions. It appears that the award 
originally imposed an annual payment of a hundred marks 
from the Town to the University, which the latter excused, 
in consideration of the forty pence, though still retaining the 
right to exact the larger sum in case of default or contumacy. 
The Mayor's oath of allegiance and obedience to the Univer- 
sity continued still later, for many of us can still remember 
the refusal of the Mayor to take the oath in Vice-Chancellor 
Williams' time. In both cases, as the ransom and the oath 
were law, the abolition was effected by Act of Parliament. 

A short time before the outbreak of Wat Tyler's insur- 
rection, a somewhat similar outrage occurred at Cambridge, 
the particulars and issues of w T hich can be found in Cooper's 
Annals of Cambridge, under date 138 1. Here, however, the 
townspeople did not apparently proceed to bloodshed. T 
have commented on this event in my Six Centuries of Labour 
and Wages, p. 264. Cooper puts it on June 6, i.e. four days 
before Tyler's insurrection. The authority which I followed 
sets it on April 30, six weeks earlier *. I concluded, as Mr. 
Cooper did, that it was an illustration of the discontent which 
was being felt at the time against exceptional privileges. In 
this case the Town was fined, and compelled to make restitu- 
tion. Their right to the assise and the police of the market 
was taken from the burgesses, and conferred on the Uni- 
versity, but in other particulars their charter was restored. 
The tenets of Wiklif's poor priests are exceedingly acceptable

confirm my date.

in the Eastern counties, where indeed Lollardy was the 
popular religion well into the Reformation. What the 
opinions of this most remarkable man were, and how far in 
advance he was in his judgment as to what constitutes the 
basis of civil government, is to be found in the recovered 
treatise of his, entitled de Dominio civili, which has been 
recently edited by Mr. Lane Poole, of Balliol College. I do 
not see how any one can interpret the undercurrents of 
political thought and action in England, perhaps from his 
days to our own, and particularly the theory of official or 
ministerial responsibility, without studying this volume. The 
theologians of the day held that rulers were responsible 
indeed, but to God only. Wiklif alleged that they were 
responsible to man also, and his followers were convinced 
that his reasoning was conclusive.

Note by Twyne. 

This writinge beareth date, nine dayes before the date of the 
Restitution of the Towne liberties, and no more. For the Townes 
pretended Charter of Restitution beareth date 2 6° Julij anno Edwardi 
3 1 29 which twenty sixt day of July, fell out that yere vppon a Sunday, 
beinge the next daye after St. James his daye, which was that yere 
vppon a Saturdaye, the Dominicall letter beinge D. And then, it 
seemes, the Towne was not pardoned for 2 reasons : first because the 
Lords of the Councell here appoynteth, that the Towne should giue to 
the vniuersitie 250^ for all manner of amends, exceptis morte et 
mahemio &c. secondly because here is order taken, for such as should 
be tried for the saide great conflict, to be bound ouer to appeare 
before the Justices as Judges at the next Sessions or assises, for 
trespasses and felonies then committed &c. which when it was, I 
cannot yet finde. Another Breife there is followinge a little after, of 
the said King Edward the 3. directed to the SherifTe of Oxon for 
takinge securitie of those that should be or had byn allready indicted 
for that conflict, and for hauinge their bodies coram dictis Justiciariis 
ad proximam sessionem suam &c. dated apud Westmonasterium 
July 16 anno regni 29. Nowe these sessions or Assises, wherein 
these Townesmen were to be tried for their outrages and felonies 

* Retraditione forsan. {Twyne.)

UNIVERSITY AND TOWN. 



committed in the great conflict, must by this account happen betwixt 
the 17^ daye of July, and the 26 daye of the same moneth which is 
the daye of the date of the restitution of the Townes liberties ; or else, 
what will become of the matter ? Seinge we cannot suppose that they 
were restored sufficiently and lawefully, before they were pardoned, 
because they were not capable of liberties without a pardon; and 
pardoned they could not be conueniently, before they were tried, and 
had answered to the lawe &c. therefore we must suppose that they 
were both tried and pardoned, before they were restored : and yet 
betwixt the i7 tl1 of July, and the 26 th , we neither finde mention of 
either of their triall, or pardon : And when the next Sessions or 
assises were held that yere, next after the 1 7 th of July, we cannot yet 
be certified. 

But sure we are, that those next followeinge Assises or Sessions 
which were to be held for the triall of felonies committed at the great 
conflict, were not held betwixt the saide 17 th daye of July, and the 
26^ daye thereof, but afterwardes ; because the King here saith, that 
in case the saide summe of money viz. 250^ be not paid in before 
Munday next after St. James his daye, then John Bedeford, and John 
Norton, (who had byn let out of prison it seemes, to be agents with the 
Towne for the saide money) should be recommitted to prison againe 
(viz. to the kinges Marshallsey) citra tertium diem post festum S. Petri 
ad vincula proxime sequens St. Peters day, beinge the first of August ; 
and so they were to be reimprisoned againe, in default of non pay- 
ment of that money or securitie giuen, betwixt the Munday next after 
St. James his daye, being the 2 5 of July, and the third daye of August, 
there to be kept, against the time of the next sessions or assises of the 
Judges &c. 

And therefore the date of the charter of the restitution of the 
Townes liberties, is very improbable ; and implieth, as if they were 
both pardoned and restored to their liberties, before the Sessions came, 
and consequently before they were tried, which is a nonsence : for 
then why should they be tried at all ? should they be tried for that, for 
which they were allready pardoned ? 

Sol : The pardon respects the Corporation. The Tryall, particular 
persons. 

Note that the great conflict happened vppon S. Scholastiks daye 
beinge 10 February 1354. Then afterwardes, in the lent Assises, as 
it appeareth by two seuerall commissions of the kinges, sent forth to 
certaine Judges &c. 6° Martij et xv° Martij, the Townesmen who had 
byn the principall ringeleaders of this vprore and outrage, were only 



THE FRAY ON S. SCHOLASTIC 'A S DAY. 255 



indicted of felonies committed in that conflict, and some perhaps 
executed for the same, because the kinge biddeth the Judges to pro- 
ceede therein, and doe Justice, secundum legem et consuetudinem 
regni &c. the others, as it seemes remayned vnder bayle though 
indicted allso, vntyll the next Assises at Michelmasse, beinge bound 
ouer to those Assises, and to receaue their triall at that time. In the 
meane time, both the Vniuersitie and Towne, in the moneth of Maye, 
gaue vp their liberties into the kinges handes ; the vniuersitie re- 
ceauinge pardon and restitution againe of their liberties twice, be- 
twixt the 20 tn of Maye, and the 27 th of June. Then, vppon the 26 of 
July the same yere, commeth in the Restitution of the Towne liberties, 
exceptinge such as the King had taken awaye from them, by vertue 
of their submission and giuen to the Vniuersitie. Nowe, seinge that 
their restitution must suppose a pardon (as well as the vniuersities did) 
and that pardon should either be ioyned with the restitution (as the 
vniuersities be) or else come forth seuerally before it, to make them 
capable of receauinge their liberties, hence it is, that we distrust the 
saide restitution, and demaunde the pardon, which they cannot pro- 
duce, because as we thinke, they neuer had any, at King Edward the 
3 his handes especially ; neither doe I thinke, that the Masters of the 
vniuersitie, videlicet, those 3 famous Regents The Charletons so often 
named in those businesses about the great conflict, and at whose 
direction, all thinges were then done, as well for the vniuersitie as the 
Towne, would suffer or consent, that the Towne should be pardoned 
before all thinges betwixt the vniuersitie and the Towne was fully 
transacted and finished*. For what sence was it, that the kinge 
should giue them a pardon, and yet binde them ouer to the next 
Assises at Michelmasse followinge, to receaue their triall for all the 
felonies and outrages committed by them in the saide great conflict ? 

Item whereas Offendors haue byn greatly encouraged, because the 
charters of pardon haue byn so swiftly granted in times past of 
manslaughters robberies felonies and other trespasses against the 
peace, it is ordeyned and enacted, that such charters shall not be 
granted, but only where the kinge maye doe it by his othe, that is to 
saye, where a man slayeth another in his owne defence, or by mis- 
fortune &c. In the statutes at large. 2 0 Edwardi 3* p. 68. in a statute 
made at Northampton. Another statute made anno 4 0 Edwardi 3* 

* Dr. Langbain's note in this page sufficiently solues all these arguments viz. 
that the City as a Body Corporate was pardoned, while private persons were every 
one to answer for private crimes. (Twyne.) 



256 



UNIVERSITY AND TOWN. 



for the maintenance of that former statute p. 71 ibidem. Another 
statute made to the same purpose anno Edwardi 3* 10. p. 76. 
Another statute made to the same purpose anno regni 140. p. 80. 
very peremptory, recitetur si videatur. And that charters of pardon 
for felonies which shalbe granted at any mans suggestion, the saide 
suggestion, and the name of him that maketh the suggestion shalbe 
comprised in the saide charter ; because the kinge had granted 
many pardons (as it seemes) vppon feigned and vntrue suggestions. 
Edwardi 3* 27. p. 10 1. 

And this may be another reason, why the Towne of Oxford or the 
Townes-men, could not be pardoned at all after the great conflict for 
the murders and felonies therein, namely because we finde such strict 
statutes made against grantinge pardons to such ofTendars in King 
Edward the 3. his time, before the great conflict, and afterwarde 
allso *. 

Note allso, that the kinge (Edward the 3) in his charter of the 
restitution of the Towne liberties biddeth the Townesmen vse all their 
other former liberties (not taken from them and giuen to the Vni- 
uersitie) plene ad gaudere prout ante captionem et turbationem prae- 
dictas, rite et rationabiliter vti et gaudere consueuistis &c. 

When as first and foremost, he had granted them no pardon, and 
secundly they were not yet tried vppon their felonies &c. and thirdly 
within two dayes of this very restitution, the saide kinge had sent 
forth his Breife directed to the Mayor and BaylifFes, for the im- 
peachinge of one of theire maine liberties, viz. for strangers to sell 
wine there, fish, flesh and other kinde of victualls et alias marcandisas ? 
by retayle or parcells as they sawe good &c. Teste meipso apud 
Westmonasterium 28 die Julij anno regni Angliae 29 et Franciae 16 
which was iust 2 dayes after the date of the supposed charta restitu- 
tionis libertatum Burgensium Oxon post magnum conflictum &c. : 
Liber Vicecancellarij p. 26. 2. et in £ p. 98. absque impedimento seu 
calumnia eisdem mercatoribus inferenda &c. although the kinge doth 
there acknowledge that this was a statute of the lande, viz. that 
strangers might sell their vittayles and wares by retayle in Lundon or 
any other good Townes &c. 

Nowe our Townesmen did not nor could not hinder these strangers 
from so doinge in regard of their liberties (which we deny was 
restored vnto them as yet) but in regard that they were then them- 
selves imployed in getting and procuringe victualls and necessaries 

* This argument would in some part reach the Vniuersitie also which had the 
kinges pardon on this occasion vide sequentem paginam. (Twyne.) 



THE FRAY ON S. SCHOLASTIC A' S DAY. 257 



for the schollers, and for that reason were licenced by the kinge to 
haue their libertie, eundo circa provisionem victualium et aliorum 
necessariorum ad opus dictorum scholarium et circa alia negotia qua> 
cunque &c. and that only cause allso had the kinges letters of 
protection to endure for one yere after the date thereof, which was 
2j° Maij anno regni 29. and this was the true and only reason why 
the Townesmen would not suffer other strangers to bringe victualls 
and other necessaries to the Towne and to vtter,it by retayle &c. not 
because they had their liberties restored : or if they had, then what 
a restitution was this, that the kinge should restore them their liberties 
and yet 2 dayes afterwarde take a maine libertie from them*. 

The very same daye allso viz. Julij 28. anno regni 29. the same 
king sent forth other letters patent to reuoke and recall from the 
Towne, the priuiledge of weapon bearinge, cancelland' &c. and why 
should a man thinke that the saide King would not haue recalled 
allso the Clarkeship of the market which standeth yet to this daye 
vppon their charter, as well as he recalled this of weapon bearinge, if 
he made full restitution rightly and duly &c. or that he would not haue 
recalled all the charters which he had made for the Chancellors and 
Mayors holdinge of the clarkeship together coniunctiue or that he 
would not haue recalled the veiwe of franke pledge, when he had 
taken from it, the assisa panis et cervisiae, assaiam mensurarum et 
ponderum, the custody of the peace and weapon bearinge and the 
cognissance of the streets if they had it, and Regraters and fore- 
stalled &c.

Ecclesiarum Rectoribus Vicariis et Capellanis parochialibus,

tatis suas adeo laxauit habenas quod inter pacificos filios 
Magistros et Scholares vniuersitatis Oxon ac communitatem 
laicorum ipsius villae grauissimam suscitauit discordiae mo- 
tionem. Alios quidem dictorum scholarium potestas eorun- 
dem laicorum vulnerauit, alios interfecit, spolia abstulit et 
domos eorum fregit et disrupit et dictae vniuersitatis pulchri- 
tudinem quasi penitus dissipauit ; propter quae et dictarum 
enormitatum excessum in ipsam Communitatem laicorum 
interdicti sententiam protulimus de consilio peritorum, quam 
ijdem laici per quaedam tempora in animarum suarum per- 
nitiem contempserunt. Sed tandem Authore Ecclesiae super-

Ac securitate ibidem studere volentium per dictos laicos facienda, esse non

the peace of the vniuersitie, conteyned in their submission to the Bishop of 
Lyncoln. Vide postea in Instrumento relaxationis interdicti per Episcopum Lyn- 
coln, p. 535. and all the deedes and writinges concerninge that matter, which was 
allso confirmed by the kinges authority ; and this is the securitie here spoken of : 
and vntyll this security was giuen (which was 2 yere after the great conflict) howe- 
soeuer the schollers might perhaps repayre to the Vniuersitie, and the Masters 
resume their lectures and such terme businesses ; yet I doe not thinke that the 
Towne either receaued pardon, or restitution of their liberties, of the kinge,

Commissio ad audiendum et terminandum de insultu quo- 
dam pernitioso in scholares Oxon perpetrato. 

Rex dilectis et fidelibus suis Ricardo de Stafford, Henrico 
Grene, Roberto de Thorpe, Willelmo de Notton, et Hugoni 
de Sadelingstanes salutem. Quia ex notorio et horribili 
clamore recepimus quod quamplures malefactores et pacis 
nostrae perturbatores Villae Oxon et partium adiacentium 
vniuersitatem nostram Oxon dispergi et dissolui facere callide 
machinantes in manu armata vexillis explicatis more guerrino 
ad mansa Magistrorum et Scholarium in eadem Vniuersitate 
accedentes, mansa ilia felonice fregerunt, et quam plures scho- 
lares et eorum seruientes ibidem nequiter interfecerunt, et 
quosdam ex iis verberauerunt, vulnerauerunt, imprisonauerunt 
et male tractauerunt, et quosdam ex iis membris mutilauerunt, 
quosdam de bonis et rebus suis depredati fuerunt, et portas 
villae praedictae, ac ostia quorundam mansorum ipsorum scho- 
larium felonice combusserunt, et magistros et scholares dictae 
Vniuersitatis ab eadem hostiliter fugauerunt, et viris Religiosis 
et alijs personis Ecclesiasticis de vita et membris suis grauiter 
comminati fuerunt et indies comminantur, et quam plurima 
alia felonias et facinora, ibidem perpetrarunt in nostri con- 
temptum et pernitiosum exemplum, et contra formam statuti 
de armis contra pacem non portandis editi, et contra pacem 
nostram. Nos, tarn enormia crimina nolentes impunita sub 

right, pardoned the Schollers of all transgressions : and this he signified into euery 
shire by writts directed to the Sheriffes, they to proclayme the same, for more 
notice of the thinge : and so, in summer followinge, the Vniuersitie began againe 
to flourish, students resortinge thither from ech side. Thus Hollinshed; whereas 
in the statute booke of acts of parliament there is no mention to be founde of any 
parlament that was held that yere, viz. in the 29 of Edw. 3. nor yet in the 30 th 
yere. But in his 31 yere, and in the yere of our Lord 1357. it appeareth that there 
was a parliament wherein some acts of parliament were made, which is the yere 
that this present charter or rescript of the Bishop of Lyncoln beareth date, and 
which peraduenture might be done at the instance of the kinge and Lords of the 
parliament, as it is here in a manner expressed &c. and this was the ende of the 
quarrell then put, whereof Hollinshed speaketh, though he were mistaken in the 
yere.

Certayne aduertisements sent vp to Lundon by Way of Com- 
playnt of the towne of Oxon against the Vniuersitie. 

The following is an account of the complaints of the City 
and the rejoinders of the University, on the question of 
University Privileges. The documents are of the reign of 
Henry VIII (p. 266). In view of the great social changes which 
were going on, the Town might have hoped that the Crown 
would relieve it from the galling dependence into which it 
was related to the University.

lawefull and rightefull processe of the priuiledge, customes,

Fleminge have nowe late in tyme of theire Mayoraltie more 
broken and more notoriously violatt then any Mayor befor 
them by the remembraunce of any man beinge in life in the 
sayd Vniuersitie. And the Burgesses or the inhabitants of 
Oxford be not inquieted by the sayd Comissarie, schollers 
and clarks. But the sayd comissarie and schollers doe say that 
they be dayly augmented by the sayd Mayor, BaylirTe and 
Burgesses of Oxford, makinge confideracions [&] conspirases 
continually and pykinge of quarells day by day in diuers 
sondrie places of the Vniuersitie, nothinge regardinge the 
King's heigh priuiledge but vncharitably and maliciously 
without any good grounde, doe resiste and breke the sayd 
priuiledge, liberties and customes contrarie to theire othe, 
great danger of their soules, enquietinge of the students and 
consequently hinderance of learning and excersise of vertue, 
without that that the sayd comissarie and schollers doe cite 
any persons inhabited within the sayd towne for causes and 
matters temporally or suspend, areste, imprison or banish 
them without any good grounde or cause as in the sayd bill is 
vntruly supposed. 

4. To the 4 th . Article the Comissarie and Schollers doe

habitants of the towne of Oxford, and for the haynous 
murdrie committed by them, by the right noble Kinge 
Edward the thirde were resumed, soe that since that tyme 
they neuer en[i]oyed any such libertie but that it was 
by the sayd Kinge wholly graunted to this Comissarie and 
schollers by the which graunte euer since the sayd Com- 
missarie and schollers the sayd liberties have quietly 
enioyed and was neuer disturbed sith the tyme of the sayd 
Kinge Edward the thirde vnto the tyme of the Mayralty of 
William Fleminge and Michael Hethe without that that the 
sayd comissarie doth exersise the keepinge of the lawedayes 
without any due processe accordinge to the King's lawes as 
in the sayd Articles is surmitted. 

5. To the 5*. Article the sayd Comissarie and schollers say 
by protestacion not knowinge if any such graunte made vnto 
the sayd Mayor and Burgesses of Oxford, but they say that 
the sayd Chauncellor his Comissarie and schollers only wholly 
and for euer hath the whole and full autoritie of the Clerk- 
s[h]ipp of the markett and that none other clerke of the 
markett there ought to intermedle and doth suffer nothing to 
be sold but it be brought to a lawefull place for sellinge 
thereof, soe that they may forsee and ouerlooke the sayd 
markett and soe vse noe parcialitie or negligence vnlesse it bee 
percase of negligence towards the inhabitants of the towne 
as Gunter, Falofild, George Rede and Chamler with such 
other, which oft sith vseth forstallinge and regratinge of 
Markett and sellinge of much corrupte vittalls and none in 
Oxford soe much as they befor namyd nor willinge to be 
required not only to the great hurte and hinderance of the 
sayd Vniuersitie but alsoe to the great hurte of the common 
wealth of the towne and the countrie. And the sayd in- 
habitants vittalers of Oxford eft sins of theire perverse 
myndes doe sell vnto theire neighboures townsmen good 
wine and to schollers wine that is corrupte and nowghte. 
And one of them shall buy soe much beefe or mutton for

shooes for viijd. that schollers shall not have vnder xd. with 
such like of all other marchandyse and vittaylls.

seyen that the fines and amarciaments of all maner of things 
doth apertayne to the sayd Chauncellor his commissarie and 
to the Vniuersitie by gifte and graunte of the King's most 
noble progeniters and soe by his grace confirmed without 
that they appertayne to the sayd Mayor and Bailiff's, and 
farther more they say that they neuer arested felons &c. but 
that they might lawefully doe as it shall expresly appeare by 
the graunts of our soueraigne Lord the King's gracious pro- 
genitors and alsoe by composition and aggreements of the 
parties. And that they neuer made sesure of any felons 
goodes to theire vse or vses or conuerted any part to theire 
owne vse as the sayd Article is vntruly surmised. 

7. To the vij Article the sayd Comissarie and schollers say 
that they knewe not of any such graunts as in the sayd 
Article is comprised. But for answeare they say that the 
sayd Chaunceller his comissarie and schollers have alwayes 
vsed them whereof the mynde of man is not to the contrarie 
as one of [the] liberties of the sayd Vniuersitie to haue ouer- 
sight and punishmente of diuers occupacions. That is to 
say the sayd comissarie as yett hath made noe incorporacion 
but vseth himselfe in certayne compositions and orders as 
diuers of his predicessors haue tyme out of mynde vsed 
amonge the vittailers and artificers &c. without takeinge of 
sumes of money other then such penalties as by our Soue- 
raigne Lord the Kinges lawes and customes of the sayd 
Vniuersitie hath bine vsed and bine alwayes accustomed to 
be payd to the sayd commissarie by there owne assente and 
willinge agreemente. And yf the inhabitants, vittailers and 
craftsmen be impourished it is other by the reason of the 
couenticles, confederacyes and conspiracies makeinge when 
they should be aboute theire marchandise or worldly busines 
or els by great sumes of money for theire first cominge in 
other theyre occupacions or els the Mayor, Bayliffs and Bur- 
gesses of Oxford exacte vpon them for theyre freedome

cheife and principall livings as it is open and manifest. And 
ouer that the Mayor and Bayliffs mantayne incorporacions 
contrarie to the King's statute and common wealth of Oxford 
as Cordwayner, taylours, glouers, fishmongers, with such 
other to the great impourishmentes of the schollers there. 
In soe much where they for a pott of sea fish the price 
thereof beinge not aboue 3s., at the most at any tyme iiijj., 
brought to theire dores without labour or payne of theire 
behalfe they make of euery pott at the least a riall and 
sumtyme a marke wherefor theire paynes in sellinge of the 
potts of fish vj d . or viij d . for euerie some were sufficient 
gaynes. 

8. To the 8 th article the sayd Chaunceller and schollers 
seyen they did neuer pursue or attempte to obtayne any 
newe graunte of our soueraigne Lord the Kinge that nowe is 
though the King's grace of his mere mocyon and by the con- 
templacion of the Lord Cardinall did build a new priuiledge 
which they have not or never intend to putt in execution any 
parte thereof nor yet intendeth to attempt any manner of 
things by the vertue of the sayd priuiledge, but that such 
priuiledge which they putt in execution they had and have of 
the meere graunts of the King's grace Most noble pro- 
genitors and by his grace confirmed and they require noe 
other othe or liberties of the Mayor then byn expressed 
in our Soueraygne Lord the King's most noble progenitours 
charters which is and hath bine so vsed by longe tyme : 
but vnder the presence of that surmised new graunte, 
the sayd Mayor and Bayliffe will have all the old and 
auncient liberties [and] priuiledges taken from the sayd Vni- 
uersitie which they quietly have enioyed without interuption 
vnto the tyme that the Mayor now beinge and Michael Hethe 
and William Fleminge Mayors them disturbed. All which 
matters the sayd Comissarie and schollers are readie to verifie 
as by your good Lordshipp shalbe decreed, and prayinge 
that they may be dismissed with theire reasonable coste and 
chardges to them to be adiudged for the wrongfull and 
slanderous vexation by them in this behalf sustayned and

The Quarrel and Suit about the City Mill. 

AMONG other property possessed by the Town of Oxford, 
and as was said by charter of the first of John (1199), were 
the Castle Mills, in S. Thomas' parish. Mills were among 
the most valuable franchises possessed by landowners, be- 
cause it was universally the case, that the inhabitants of a 
manor were compellable to use the Lord's Mill, and to incur 



284 



UNIVERSITY AND TOWN. 



the liability of such tolls as the Miller was entitled to charge. 
The discretion of this personage was however checked by the 
police of the Manor, for if he were presented for extortion, 
and the case was proved against him, he was liable to a fine, 
and fines imposed on the Miller frequently occur in the Re- 
cords of Court Rolls. It may be expedient to illustrate these 
facts by direct evidence. 

When Merton College abandoned cultivation on its own 
account on their Cuxham estate, the income which the Col- 
lege derived from this Manor, inclusive of the rents of Assise, 
the contingencies of the Manor, and the receipts of the court, 
was about ^i^a year, the incidents referred to being over 
But the rent of the water-mill was £% io.s\, and of the fulling- 
mill 13s. 4d., for occasion was taken to levy a tax on this 
necessary process in dressing cloth. But the number of in- 
habitants in the village could not have been more than fifty. 
The miller's tax was therefore a notable charge on the in- 
habitants, as he had to live after paying his rent. In all 
likelihood, it amounted to at least £J 10s. a year, and it is 
no wonder that the system, as well as the representative of it, 
were unpopular. 

Now the Town (after Henry VIII's reign, the City) of Ox- 
ford claimed to have the monopoly of grinding corn for all 
the burgesses resident therein. There were other ancient mills 
in Oxford, besides those of the Castle. The monks of Oseney 
had a mill, and most likely other monasteries which contained 
running streams within their precincts. The manor of Holy- 
well certainly had two, of which the most important was that 
known as King's Mill, purchased it appears in the fifteenth 
century, the weir and fall of which is at the exit into the 
Marston-road, of what is now called Mesopotamia. The 
other was just below the grange, and on the other side 
of the stream which encloses the Magdalene College Water 
Walk. The privileges of the manor of Holywell were exten- 
sive. The manor was neither in the Town, nor in the County, 
and before it came into the possession of Merton College, the 



QUARREL AND SUIT ABOUT THE CITY MILL. 285 

privileges of Holywell Manor were successfully insisted on. 
See above, p. 312. 

If the Town took toll on all the inhabitants for the use of 
its mill, and enforced its real or reputed rights, it kept its 
mills in good order. Some of the fullest information which 
I have obtained for the price of mill-stones of the best kind 
comes from the City Archives. A few years before the trans- 
actions occur which the following pleadings refer to, the City 
had gone to the expense of over for a pair of stones to 
their mill, probably the new or third mill which they had re- 
cently set up. The City claimed the right of confiscating corn 
which had been ground at other mills, and to hold a Court 
Leet for the punishment of offenders and defaulters. In their 
pleadings they allege that the profit of the mills is the only 
source of income on which they can rely for the payment of 
the King's fee-farm rent of £55 6s. Sd. or 83 marks a year. 
It would seem that this fee-farm rent of the mills must be 
distinguished from the fee-farm of the town, the greater part 
of which had long been granted to the lepers of St. Bartholo- 
mew in Cowley, though the complainants allege that the 
profit of the mills is necessary in order that this ancient fee- 
farm rent might be paid. 

It seems that certain Bakers claimed to be privileged per- 
sons, and thereupon to be quit of any service to the City, 
being consequently entitled to grind their corn where they 
pleased. They had therefore resorted to the King's Mill in 
Holywell Parish. In consequence of the mention of Mr. 
Harris' name as Mayor, Twyne concluded that the pleadings 
were at or about the year 1609. There was no doubt a 
Francis Harris, Mayor of Oxford in 1609-10, who seems to 
have, according to Anthony Wood, negotiated the sale 
of the Austin Friars to the foundress of Wadham College, 
and stipulated that his nephew should be one of the first 
fellows. This young man died in 1614. (Wood's Colleges 
and Halls?) 

But the date of the pleadings appears to be settled by an 



UNIVERSITY AND TOWN, 



entry in the Register-book of Merton College, under the 
years 1606 and 1608. The College determined to defend the 
interests of those who used its Mill, and at a trial held at Nisi 
Prius during the Oxford Assises in this year, the Jury found 
against the City, and the costs, £13 6s. 6d., were paid to the 
College from the City cash. On this the City authorities 
summoned those who ground their corn at other than the 
Castle Mills, { before the Barons of the Exchequer, sitting in 
Serjeants' Inn,' and the College sent their Sub-warden to 
London to defend the cause. Perhaps this court is chosen 
in consequence of the plea, reiterated in what follows, that 
if the customs of the Mills were lost, the King's fee-farm rent 
would suffer. Now at this time the Earl of Dorset was at 
once Lord Treasurer, and Chancellor of the University. The 
Barons of the Exchequer wished him to be present, probably 
as a person who could inform them as to the privileges of the 
University. But the Chancellor could not come, and there- 
fore no decision was given. 

In April, 1608, the citizens sued the defendants in Equity. 
But they had no better fortune here. The Court referred ; 
the cause to the Jus Commune, 1 the Exchequer Chamber to 
state a case.' But henceforth the register of the College is 
silent on the subject, and one may conclude that the City ( 
was advised to drop the action, or informed that their case 1 j 
was hopeless. As far as my own researches are concerned, 
I regretted to find that the City ceased to buy mill-stones, ( 
for none appear in the City accounts thenceforward. Very j 
possibly, the Exchequer Chamber satisfied itself that the ] 
margin, even after the monopoly was broken, was amply suf- 
ficient to secure the rent of the Crown, and that the City 
sublet the Mills.

be seized as forfeited to the Complainants or their fermors : 
Except licence haue beene giuen to grinde elsewhere in case 
when for want of reparation or otherwise they could not there 
be serued. 

That in such Cases of exception a Baker desiringe licence 
to grind elsewhere should tender to the Complainants or

of the Complainants. 

Holliwell is a Mannor pertaineinge to Merton Colledge, 
containinge a whole parishe or Hamblett, the Colledge hathe 
a Mill their whereunto all the Tennants of this Mannor are 
tied to doe suite by grindinge their corne at that Mill, they 
may not grind from thence either at the Towne Mills or else- 
where. Also there are diuerse Townes nere adioininge which 
grinde at Holliwell, By like equitie and hopeth by lawe alsoe 
since all the houses in the Towne, or the most part therof

are holden of the Mayor, Bayliffes and Comminaltie in Bur- 
gage they may challenge suite of all Burgagers at the Mill, 
though they had no especiall nor extraordinary prescription, 
yet their challenge is only to the common Bakers, all which 
dwell in Burgages.

the Hospitall of Lepers at St. Bartholomewes 2o w and after

There is still paid into the Exchequer for the ferme 35** 
yerely besides the said deduccions and the 20 n paid to St. 
Bartholmewes.

MISCELLANEOUS. 



MISCELLANEOUS. 



The documents which follow are of a miscellaneous char- 
acter. The first is the copy of one among the S. Frideswide 
Charters, and gives in Norman French the boundaries of the 
Town and its jurisdiction, always excepting the franchise of 
Holywell manor, and its members, which are geographically 
included in the Town, but formed an exempt jurisdiction. 
The date is probably of the first half of the fifteenth century. 
The jurisdiction of the University was also comprised within 
the same limits, and was similarly exempt. Part at least of 
the lordship of the North Hundred was contained in the 
Town boundaries, but this was also probably under another 
authority than that of the Mayor and Bailiffs. 

The second is a rental of the Town. It seems to be in- 
complete, or to contain those tenements mainly which were 
near the Town Wall. But the largest item is that derived 
from the cellar, shops, and chambers under the Guildhall, 
which was, I presume, on the same site as the present City 
Buildings are. 

The third is a list of the tolls leviable on sales in the boun- 
daries of the City and devoted towards the repair of the Wall, 
for this is the general meaning of murage. 

The last two documents relate to buildings still standing 
in Oxford, viz. the tower of New College and that of Merton 
College Chapel. The former gives only a summary of the 
charges incurred. It is clear that the amount does not com- 
prise the particulars of all the expense of building the tower, 
for the cost of raising thirty-three feet only of the structure

tower of Merton College Chapel, near half a century later.
